Call for Nominations for the Annual German Poster Award Competition

FUN is excited to partner once again with the German Graduate Schools of Neuroscience to offer this wonderful opportunity for a lucky undergraduate neuroscientist. The award this year will have two options for the winner to choose from.  The first option will be the week-long visit to German Neuroscience Programs that has been offered with past awards. The second available option will be a travel grant to cover round trip airfare for the student to attend a new FUN supported Neuroscience Summer Course that will be offered through the College of Charleston in Munich and Berlin in 2011.  More information about the summer course will be available at SfN this fall. This year's application is due October 15th, 2010.  The application is attached as a word document at the bottom of the page. 


To be eligible for this award, the nominee must currently be an undergraduate student. Each nominee must be sponsored by a FUN Member whose dues are current. Each sponsor may nominate only one student. For a poster to be considered, it must have been accepted for presentation by the nominee at the FUN Social and Poster Session at the Society for Neuroscience Meeting. The posters are judged on methodological approach, degree of difficulty, solidity/verifiability of data, contribution to "new knowledge", design and layout of the poster, and the ability of the student to answer questions regarding the project.

Please send completed nomination forms to Chris Korey ( by October 15th, 2010.
