This fellowship provides an opportunity for students with an interest in the neurosciences to gain extensive research experience at the Neuroscience Institute/Center of Excellence at the University of Tennessee Health Sciences Center, located just 10 minutes from the Rhodes campus.
Students must commit to one summer (12 weeks) of full-time work, as well as 8 to 10 hours per week during the academic year. They will engage in a project that culminates in a formal research report, and students will be required to present their work at regional and/or national meeting. Students will have the opportunity to extend their fellowship for a second summer. Eligible students may conduct Honors Research in their mentor’s lab.
This fellowship is available for students following their second or third year at Rhodes. Housing in the East Village dorms will be available during the summer. Preference will be given to students who are interested in extending this experience beyond the one- year commitment.
