Apply to be a Mentor for our NSP Scholars! 

We encourage scientists in the Department of Neurobiology who have a strong motivation to increase diversity in STEM research via a summer mentorship program and are dedicated to creating a welcoming and supportive environment in lab to apply to become an NSP mentor this summer! Chosen mentors will be matched with recent high school graduates (18+ years old) or current undergraduate students with ties to Baltimore. Graduate student applicants should pass their qualifying exam prior to applying and, along with post-doctoral fellows, must receive approval from their PI to host the scholar in the lab and devote the time required to mentoring. If this sounds like you, apply to be an NSP mentor today!

We thank Kahlert Institute for Addiction Medicine, Youthworks and the Department of Neurobiology for their support!
