The Solomon H. Snyder Department of Neuroscience at John Hopkins University was founded in 1980. The field of neuroscience is relatively young, as the pioneer Sol Snyder new all too well. The Solomon H. Snyder Department of Neuroscience at Johns Hopkins University was one of the first to be created in the country. Through the Department of Neuroscience, our exceptional collegial environment makes the Department of Neuroscience a unique, exciting and dynamic place to do science.
The Neuroscience graduate Program inaugurated in 1983 is organized to form a nurturing academic environment for our students and our professionals. The students that train with our faculty have gone on to research at some of the most prestigious institutions in the world. These scientists now hold offices and occupy positions as department chairs, investigators, editors of major neuroscience journals and leadership positions at major biotech-pharmaceutical companies.
A select group of students has been fortunate enough to participate in the high school neuroscience program. The high school neuroscience program is a prestigious opportunity available through our department of Neuroscience at Johns Hopkins. There are several resources that can provide funding for these opportunities. Some of which can be found through the Jackie Robinson Foundation Scholarship Award.
For eligibility of the Jackie Robinson Foundation Scholarship, several requirements must be met. The applicant must be a graduating high school senior, plant to attend an accredited and approved four-year institution within the United States, show leadership potential, demonstrate a dedication to community service, present evidence of financial need, be a united states citizen, have a minimum SAT score of 1,000 combined on the math and critical reading sections or a composite ACT score of 21, not possess a degree from a 2 or 4-year college when applying for the scholarship.
The Jackie Robinson Foundation provides 30,000 dollars over four years to minority high school students showing leadership potential and demonstrating financial need to attend an accredited 4-year college or university of their choice. It’s an excellent tool to fund a high school neuroscience program. With the John Hopkins high school neuroscience program, every penny spent will be at the cutting edge of education for high school neuroscientists.
