Colors of the Brain - Kavli Institute of the Brain and Mind (CoB-KIBM) Scholars Program
Colors of the Brain, in collaboration with The Kavli Institute for Brain and Mind, have established a new summer undergraduate research program (CoB-KIBM Scholars) that will launch in Summer 2021. Our goals are to motivate, mentor and facilitate the transition of undergraduate students at UC San Diego that come from disadvantaged economic and social backgrounds, as well as students with disabilities, into Ph.D. programs with significant relevance to neuroscience. The CoB-KIBM Scholars Program consists of a paid ($5,000 stipend, housing included in this stipend), full-time research position across 10 weeks within a UC San Diego or Salk laboratory, along with mentorship and support for navigating academic research for the remainder of their undergraduate education. We highly encourage students with little or no research experience to apply.
Our selection process will consist of 3 phases:
1. Review of Written Statements: March 16th – March 29th, 2021
2. Interviews: March 30th – April 7th, 2021
3. Notification of Award: April 15th, 2021
We will select 5-10 students for in-person or virtual interviews. These interviews will serve as an opportunity for the Colors of the Brain graduate mentors to gain insight into applicants’ interests and commitment to a research career.
On April 15th, 2021, we will notify the 3 applicants that are chosen to be part of the inaugural CoB-KIBM Program. Selected applicants will have 2 weeks to accept the offer.
