UWIN’s last round of neuroengineering undergraduate fellowships have been awarded. See all funded fellows here.
UWIN’s Washington Research Foundation (WRF) Innovation Undergraduate Fellowships in Neuroengineering provide support for undergraduate students whose research relates to both neuroscience and quantitative approaches in math, computer science, or engineering. Undergraduate students (either from the UW or from another institution) 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 is based on the quarter (summer vs. fall/winter/spring) in which the research takes place, and the number of hours committed. The maximum stipend possible is $6000 for full-time summer quarter research or $3000 for research during fall, winter, or spring quarter.
In general, UWIN undergraduate fellowships will cover a maximum of one summer quarter of research or two quarters of fall/winter/spring 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.
