GSN-LMU 2019 Munich Brain Course Award

As a sponsor, the GSN will select up to 5 BSc and MSc students from programs outside of Germany to participate in 2019. Application period: December 1, 2018 - January 15, 2019

01.12.2018 – 15.01.2019


Neuroanatomy is the foundation of all neuroscience. Yet, the application of neuroanatomical knowledge in everyday clinical or scientific practice can be difficult. The brain course at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) München aims at illustrating and teaching anatomical issues as viewed from various neuroscientific disciplines. The Munich Brain Course is a yearly event held every spring. Each course has several main topics, with additional presentations and hands-on dissections. The upcoming course will take place on March 15th and 16th, 2019.

As a sponsor of the Munich Brain Course, the Graduate School of Systemic Neurosciences at LMU Munich will select up to 5 Bachelor or Master students to participate in the 2019 course. Selected students will receive an award covering travel costs and course fees. Accommodation will also be provided.

Bachelor or Master students enrolled (this translates to still having coursework to complete after the workshop in March 2019) in life science or natural science degree programs outside of Germany.

Students can apply for one of the 5 scholarships from December 1st, 2018 until January 15th, 2019.
