Funding and Support

Undergraduate research in psychology and neuroscience is strongly supported by Trinity College of Arts and Sciences through the Office of Undergraduate Research Support (URS), available to help students think about their research interests and better understand the variety of opportunities for undergraduate research at Duke along with a growing list of financial support in the form of grants, fellowships, and scholarships. 

Through the generous support from the Charles Lafitte Foundation, students pursuing majors in psychology and neuroscience are eligible to apply for departmental research grants. Call for applications go out via listserve at the beginning of each semester. Our programs in psychology and neuroscience also collaborate closely with the Duke Library System to connect students with supporting research services.
