Deadline extended: Munich Brain Course Award 2016
Neuroanatomy is the foundation of all neuroscience. Yet, the application of neuroanatomical knowledge in everyday clinical or scientific practice can be difficult. The brain course at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) München aims at illustrating and teaching anatomical issues as viewed from various neuroscientific disciplines. The Munich Brain Course is a yearly event held every spring. Each course has several main topics, with additional presentations and hands-on dissections. The upcoming course will take place on March 16th - 19th 2016 and focus on spinal cord, cerebellum and occipital lobe.
As a sponsor of the Munich Brain Course, the Graduate School of Systemic Neurosciences at LMU Munich will select up to 10 Bachelor or Master students to participate in the 2016 course. Selected students will receive an award covering travel costs and course fees. Accommodation will also be provided.
Bachelor or Master students currently enrolled in life science or natural science degree programs outside of Germany.
Students can apply for one of the 10 scholarships until January 18th, 2016.
