The Albstein Research Scholarship is open to Johns Hopkins undergraduate and graduate students pursuing intensive research in brain science. We are accepting funding applications of up to $5,000 for a single year of research funding, to be spent before the end of spring semester (example: award funds granted in spring 2024 are available until the end of spring 2025). Special consideration will be given to projects relating to Alzheimer’s research.
Students may perform their research at any Hopkins facility, including the Homewood campus or JHMI. Funding may go toward direct research costs, travel costs (to and from research sites or conferences where the applicant will present research findings), and summer housing and living expenses if research is conducted over the summer.
How to Apply
Submit a pre-application by October 23, 2023, and a final application by November 27, 2023.
