Graduate Neuroscience Training Program

Program Overview

Diagram of program

The hallmark of FAU's Graduate Neuroscience Training Program is breadth. The curriculum encourages students to sample multiple, distinct thematic areas during their first-year, while also accommodating the more experienced student with a deeper dive into specific areas.

During the first year, students have the opportunity to rotate across laboratories affiliated with Integrative Biology, Experimental Psychology and Complex Systems and Brain Sciences Ph.D. programs, pursuing a common curriculum and graduate seminar and engaging in social and professional develop activities with program faculty and the Neuroscience Student Organization (NSO).

All students receive nationally-competitive stipends $30,000 for the 2021-2022 academic year, made up of guaranteed research and teaching assistantships, health insurance coverage (up to $3,000/yr), and opportunities to compete for research and travel grants. Admitted students who join the NSO receive a complimentary membership in the Society for Neuroscience and the opportunity to host visiting speakers.
