The stipend for the program will be $3000 for a ten-week period, from May 26 to July 31, 2015. The student will be expected to treat the research experience as a full-time commitment during the ten-week period. The student will make oral presentations for their peers and faculty during the course of the 10-week project. At the completion of the program, the student will write a formal research paper on their summer project and will do a poster presentation in conjunction with other CNS students involved in summer research.
