Call for applications: 2011-2012 Visiting Undergraduate Research Fellowship

The Cognitive Science Program at Indiana University, Bloomington, invites upper-level undergraduate students and students who are graduating from college to apply for the Cognitive Science Visiting Undergraduate Research Fellowship.

The fellowship is designed to give students interested in Cognitive Science an opportunity to design and conduct their own research while working closely with a faculty mentor, at one of the top Cognitive Science programs in the country, for a full academic year.

Students selected for the program may enroll in up to 17 credits per semester, but will be expected to devote a minimum of 6 credit hours per semester to research approved by the Cognitive Science Program.  Students will also have the option to enroll in our outstanding undergraduate courses. The Cognitive Science Undergraduate Program stresses skills acquisition, and aims to foster the abilities that make students into scientists. The application deadline is April 18th, 2011, and those who are accepted will be notified by early May.
