Giving to Neuroscience

Welcome to the School of Neuroscience.

The School of Neuroscience greatly appreciates any contributions that you make in order to help support our program. Founded in 2016, our school has grown to over 820 students.  Your generosity will enhance research, support graduate stipends, and ensure continued growth.

All donations to the School of Neuroscience go towards helping to fund students to get engaged in research. For example, we provide paid student summer internships in laboratories, and we invite students to present their work at national research conferences and symposia.

Furthermore, contributions allow us to establish scholarships for Neuroscience students who exemplify merit and/or are in need of financial aid.


Endowed funds provide a permanent source of income to meet the needs of School faculty and students. Endowed funds may be unrestricted or restricted for a specific purpose, such as chairs, distinguished professorships or fellowships. They may be established through an outright gift of cash, securities, a planned gift, or a bequest.

Memorial/Honorary Funds

A memorial fund can help perpetuate the values and ideals that guided someone’s life. Honorary funds can commemorate a significant event or honor someone who is still living.
