Graduate Neuroscience Training Program

NGP Program Overview


The hallmark of FAU's Ph.D. Neuroscience Graduate 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 neuroscience laboratories across multiple Colleges and Departments. During the first year, new students pursue a common core curriculum, attend graduate seminars and engage 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 2022-2023 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.
