Research Opportunities

Center for Neural Science Summer Research Program
Summer Research Program The Center for Neural Science hosts a summer research experience program for undergraduates with an interest in neuroscience. Students apply for positions in a 10-week summer program during which they actively participate in research projects in the laboratories of New York University science faculty.

National Science Foundation
The Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program supports active research participation by undergraduate students in any of the areas of research funded by the National Science Foundation. REU projects involve students in meaningful ways in ongoing research programs or in research projects specially designed for the purpose. This solicitation features two mechanisms for support of student research: REU Supplements and REU Sites.

The Council on Undergraduate Research
The mission of the Council on Undergraduate Research is to support and promote high-quality undergraduate student-faculty collaborative research and scholarship.

The BP Endure opportunity research grant
For students interested in research in neural science, NYU works in partnership with Hunter College to offer the BP Endure Fellowship. Open to minorities and students with documented disabilities, this program enables students to do research over the course of two academic years and two summers.

The Changemaker Challenge Social Entrepreneurship grant
For students interested in social entrepreneurship, the NYU Reynolds Program invites applicants for its annual Changemaker Challenge, which brings together research and business opportunities in a unique way to help make a lasting impact on society.
