Gender Inclusion in Neuroscience
The mission of our organization is to enrich science by promoting inclusion of underrepresented gender identities in neuroscience. We are redefining the scientific community to be one in which all people, regardless of gender, are empowered to pursue genuine self-expression, scientific endeavors, and career advancement.
McNair Scholars receive comprehensive support to earn undergraduate degrees, complete research projects in their fields of study, and apply to graduate schools. The goal of the McNair Scholars Program is to increase graduate degree awards for students from underrepresented segments of society.
The University of Oregon (UO) Summer Program for Undergraduate Research (SPUR) provides fellowship opportunities for undergraduate students to participate in research in Life Sciences laboratories at UO during the summer. Underrepresented groups in life sciences research are considered by race, ethnicity, low-income, first-generation to attend college, and disability status. Access to research is also considered.
This program is designed for students whose socioeconomic backgrounds, educational records, and personal situations suggest they may experience challenges at the UO that could be alleviated with use of resources offered by SSS.
