UWIN’s last round of neuroengineering post-baccalaureate fellowships have been awarded. See all funded fellows here.
UWIN’s Washington Research Foundation (WRF) Innovation Post-baccalaureate Fellowships in Neuroengineering provide support for individuals who have recently completed an undergraduate degree and are pursuing post-baccalaureate research relating to both neuroscience and quantitative approaches in math, computer science, or engineering. Individuals who have recently completed undergraduate degrees, have not yet begun post-graduate education, and who have committed to doing research in the laboratory of one of the participating faculty members are welcome to apply for a fellowship. Co-mentoring between experimental and theoretical or engineering groups is encouraged. If a postdoctoral fellow will be the primary advisor, letters of support should come both from the postdoctoral fellow and the faculty mentor.
Stipend level will depend on the number of hours and duration of time committed to the research. The maximum funding possible for one individual is $6000; UWIN post-baccalaureate fellowships are generally expected to provide only partial support to a post-baccalaureate researcher, depending on the amount of time committed to the research.
Application deadlines will be noted on this website and distributed to participating faculty. Individuals from underrepresented minority groups are especially encouraged to apply.
Applications are evaluated on: a) Fit to mission of UWIN, b) Academic record and candidate qualifications, c) Mentoring plan and fellowship’s benefit to candidate, d) Proposed research, and e) Letter of support from advisor. If a postdoctoral fellow will be the primary advisor, letters of support should come both from the postdoctoral fellow and the faculty mentor.
