Duke's Summer Neuroscience Program (formally known as NPR) is an 8-week summer program enabling you to conduct full-time research to jump start your Graduation with Distinction senior thesis. Full-time participants receive a $3,000 stipend, and mentors receive $1,000 towards their discretionary fund. You may also elect to take one summer school course during term I or II; you obtain $1500 and your mentor receives $500. Once your potential mentor is identified, you will need to collaborate with them to complete and submit an SNP application.
