6 of our Psychology and Neuroscience undergraduates, Samantha Dove, Isai Garcia-Baza, Jocelyn Le, Nadia Peyravian, Jasmine Shah, and Megan Villegas, are the recipients of the 2015-16 Lindquist Undergraduate Research Grants.

The Psychology and Neuroscience Undergraduate Research Program, on behalf of the Lindquist Undergraduate Research Fund, funds undergraduate research projects in the Department. These funds can be used to buy needed equipment or software, recruit participants, or to offset costs related to presenting or publishing research. In total, six grants are awarded over the academic year – three in the fall and three in the spring.

Congratulations to this year’s recipients!
