/Scholarships and Awards:/

When we learn of scholarship opportunities that are available to psychology students, we will post those opportunities along with how to obtain more information.  Although we will post all the information we receive, students should not assume that every scholarship that may be available to them will be posted here.

Unfortunately, there are no scholarships that are directly administered by the psychology department.

Emory University School of Medicine and Children's Healthcare of Atlanta

The Marcus Autism Center, in conjunction with the Emory University School of Medicine and Children?s Healthcare of Atlanta, is offering three fellowships: the Cohen Fellowship in Developmental Social Neuroscience, the Simons Fellowship in Computational Neuroscience, and the Simons Fellowship in Design Engineering. Attached, please find a brochure describing the fellowships. I ask that you let us know that you have received this e-mail and that you forward it, along with the associated brochure, to students in University of Massachusetts Amherst?s Psychology Department.

 

Students who will receive a bachelor?s degree by June 2015 will be eligible for the positions. The fellowships will commence in July 2015, and they are 2 years in duration. Students can find further details at cohenfellowship.org<http://cohenfellowship.org> and simonsfellowship.org<http://simonsfellowship.org>.

 

The training experience for the Cohen Fellowship in Developmental Social Neuroscience will primarily involve daily activities related to eye-tracking research, including operation of experimental equipment and paradigms, contact with infants and toddlers and their families, and responsibility for completing experimental protocols.

 

The training experience for the Simons Fellowship in Computational Neuroscience will involve developing methods for the analysis of visual scanning and eye-tracking data, computational models of visual salience, and data visualization techniques, all with the aim of advancing the understanding of autism and efforts at early diagnosis.

 

The training experience for the Simons Fellowship in Design Engineering will involve developing innovative design solutions to answer experimental research questions. These solutions offer an opportunity to explore human factors engineering, product prototyping, and the design of environments for neuroscience research.
