Fellowships, Scholarships & Financial Aid

The following fellowships and scholarships are available for all courses and to all applicants (both U.S. and international), subject to individual eligibility. To be considered, submit a short financial aid request letter with your course application materials that describes your eligibility for the awards you wish to apply for. Please be sure to read through all the information here, as different funding agencies may require specific information in the financial aid request.

  • Helmsley Fellowships: If your formal scientific training is primarily outside biology (e.g. your undergraduate degree is in computer science, physics, math, or engineering), you may be eligible for a Helmsley Fellowship and, if selected into the course you're applying to, may be provided with funds representing 51-100% of the tuition enrollment fee posted on the main course webpage (the Welcome tab above).

  • Helmsley Scholarships: If you have formal training in the biosciences but are new to the subfield covered by the course you're applying to, you may be eligible for a Helmsley Scholarship. If selected into the course, the Helmsley Scholarship will cover 31-50% of the tuition enrollment fee posted on the main course webpage (the Welcome tab above).

  • Howard Hughes Medical Institute Support: HHMI funds cover 10-30% of the tuition enrollment fee posted on the main course webpage (the Welcome tab above).

  • Regeneron Scholars Program: This program provides scholarships to researchers from under-resourced universities, medical schools, and private institutions from both the U.S. and overseas. Regeneron Scholars will receive 35-65% of the tuition enrollment fee posted on the main course webpage (the Welcome tab above) and may be invited to participate in future academic events hosted by Regeneron Pharmaceuticals. To be considered, please include in your financial aid request one paragraph (150-250 words) outlining the relevance of your research to solving global unmet biomedical and/or life science needs, and how you anticipate enrollment in the course will help accelerate your research to that end.

The following sources of financial aid are available only for specific courses and to specific applicants. Please check the main course webpage (the Welcome tab above) to see which agencies and/or foundations support the course you're applying for, and read through all the information here to determine your eligibility.

If selected into the course, you may be provided with financial aid representing 10-30% of the tuition enrollment fee posted on the main course webpage (the Welcome tab above).

  • National Science Foundation (NSF): You may be eligible to receive a partial NSF award if you are a U.S. citizen, U.S. permanent resident, or are based in a U.S. laboratory, and the course you're applying to is at least partially supported by the NSF. If selected into the course, you may be provided with financial aid representing 10-30% of the tuition enrollment fee posted on the main course webpage (the Welcome tab above).

  • International Brain Research Organization (IBRO): IBRO Fellowship support is available for scientists from developing nations or U.S. minority-serving institutions who are accepted into neuroscience summer courses.
