2019 Application


2019 Application


Apply

To Apply For 2019:

 

Applications are now open. The deadline for full consideration is December 15, 2018. Decisions will be emailed in January 2019.

Apply here: https://duke.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_djy7Fm08Py4bSip

There is no cost to attend the school; registration and lodging will be provided for all attendees. There are limited funds available to offset travel expenses (more information will be provided if you are admitted this year).

This year, participation in the International Symposium on Decision Neuroscience will be included with summer school. Lodging and conference registration will also be covered for those attending the conference on Friday and Saturday. All are encouraged to stay for the conference.

Priority will be given to individuals with research programs currently focused on improving health and well being in old age or who have plans to extend their work into this area. Individuals from backgrounds that are underrepresented in science are strongly encouraged to apply.

If you are hesitant to apply because travel is complicated while you have an infant or small children, we will do everything we can to accommodate you. If there is interest, we will provide child care during the days and can provide space and time during the events for nursing and/or other childcare-related activities. If needed, we can express ship your pumped milk home to an infant using Milk Stork.
