The NIH/NINDS-LSUHSC-New Orleans, Undergraduate Diversity in Neuroscience Research Experiences 

The NIH Blueprint initiative  "Enhancing Neuroscience Diversity through Undergraduate Research Education Experiences (ENDURE)" aims to raise interest and provide opportunities in neuroscience research for individuals who are typically underrepresented in the field.

The program provides such individuals with training at the undergraduate level, thereby preparing students to enter and successfully complete neuroscience Ph.D. programs.  ENDURE will provide this undergraduate training through partnerships between research-intensive institutions and institutions with a substantial enrollment of neuroscience majors from people with backgrounds from historically-excluded, underrepresented, underserved backgrounds, including individuals with disabilities and individuals from economically disadvantaged backgrounds. This program is year-long and includes two mentors, one LSUHSC-NO Research Mentor and one academic mentor from the home institution.

Applications' submissions: November 1st; Applications' deadlines: March 31st; Programmatic start: June 1st
