Here Scholarship-position.com has compiled the information of different types of grants and scholarships which are available for getting degree and making career in neuroscience. Due to emerging field of science, many universities and colleges fund a financial aids and grants to earn a degree in this field.
Neuroscience is the study of body nervous system and how they affect human behavior. The scope of neuroscience includes the diverse approaches which are used to study the molecular, structural, functional, cellular, developmental, evolutionary and medical aspects of the nervous system. A degree in Neuroscience will enable you to work as a Neuroscientist, Neuroanatomist, Neurobiologist, Neurochemist, Neurological Surgeon, Neurologist, Neuropathologist, Neuropharmacologist, Neurophysiologist, Neuropsychologist, Neuroradiologist, Psychobiologist, Biological Psychologist, Psychiatrist, Neuroscience Nurse, Psychophysicist and Electroneurodiagnostic Technician etc. Lots of scholarships and fellowships are available for the neuroscience majors to study undergraduates, graduates, postgraduates, research and PhD levels. Scholarships opportunities are provided by different donors and therefore the eligibility varies from fund to fund. Let’s have a look at the list of scholarships below:
Scholarship Program: 2013 PhD Position in Neuroscience at University of Oslo in Norway
Employer: University of Oslo (UiO)
Level of Study: PhD
Scholarship Description: One position as PhD student fellow (SKO 1017) in Neuroscience is available for 3 years in the Synaptic Neurochemistry Laboratory at the Department of Anatomy, IMB, University of Oslo (UiO). The laboratory studies basic aspects of brain signalling and metabolism, including their importance in normal aging and brain diseases.The Institute of Basic Medical Sciences consists of different departments engaged in basic and translational science, as well as education of medical students, dental students, and students of nutrition. The institute has approximately 340 employees and is located in the Domus Medica.

Scholarship Program: Doctoral Fellowships in Neurosciences at Max Planck Institute for Brain Research, 2013 Germany
Employer: Max Planck Society
Level of Study: Doctoral
Scholarship Description: The common focus of the IMPRS for Neural Circuits will be the understanding of neural circuits (from the simple to the large and complex), at all scales required to achieve this understanding. This ambitious objective will require analyses at the molecular, cellular, multi-cellular, network and behavioral levels, with the full understanding that macroscopic phenomena (spatial patterns, dynamics) can be scale-dependent, and that reductionism is not always sufficient as a method.

Scholarship Program: Joint International in Cognitive Neuroscience PhD Program, 2012/13
Level of Study: PhD
Subjects: Cognitive Neuroscience
Country: JICN Partner institutions
Scholarship Description: Cognitive Neuroscience is concerned with how cognitive and emotional functions are implemented via the architecture of the human brain. A key factor in the development of this discipline has been the integration of several academic disciplines that have historically been quite separate. These include: cognitive psychology, neuropsychology, neuroimaging, neurophysiology and neuroanatomy.

Scholarship Program: PhD Position in Computational Neuroscience at University of Bern, Switzerland
Employer: University of Bern, Switzerland
Level of Study: PhD
Subjects: Computational Neuroscience
Scholarship Description: The computational neuroscience group at the Department of Physiology studies mathematical models of neurons and synapses in the context of cortical information processing and learning. Particularly we are interested in biologically plausible models for learning and memory Which explain animal and human behavior. The current project aims to extend the theory of reinforcement learning in spiking neurons to networks and sequence learning.

Scholarship Program: Doctoral Research Position in Psychology and Cognitive Neuroscience at Saarland University, 2012 Germany
Employer: German Research Foundation
Level of Study: PhD
Subjects: Psychology and Cognitive Neuroscience
Scholarship Description: The doctoral researcher will work on a research project investigating memory processes and neuroendocrinological factors which influence intrusive memories after traumatic events under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Tanja Michael and Prof. Dr. Axel Mecklinger. A multidisciplinary study program, including courses on the theoretical background of the research projects and practical training in behavioral and neuroscientific research tools, will complement the realization of the doctoral project. Separate funding (i.e. allowances for external research visits) in addition to the high-level scholarships offer the unique opportunity of participating in a stimulating foreign cultural and scientific context via research visits of up to several months at the partner institute in China. Additional funding is provided to attend several national and international conferences.

Scholarship Program: 2012 Postdoctoral Research Position in Neuroscience at University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, UK
Employer: Medical Research Council (MRC)
Level of Study: Postdoctoral Research
Scholarship Description: Applications are invited for this Medical Research Council (MRC) funded postdoctoral research position in the group of Dr Shuzo Sakata in the Centre for Neuroscience University of Strathclyde (CeNsUS), Glasgow. You will work on one of our ongoing projects “Pathological ensembles in the auditory thalamocortical circuit following acoustic trauma”. The mission of our research team is to understand how sensory information is processed by brain circuits, and to develop better strategies for the improvement and restoration of sensory abilities, with emphasis on hearing. Candidates should have a PhD in the field of systems neuroscience. Experience with in vivo extracellular recording, rodents behavioural testing and/or computer programming (e.g., MATLAB, C++, and/or LabVIEW) is essential. Knowledge of auditory neuroscience is desirable.

Scholarship Program: MARCS Institute PhD Scholarship at University of Western Sydney, Australia 2013
Employer: MARCS Institute
Level of Study: PhD
Subjects: Medicine, Neuroscience, Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics, Linguistics, Psychology, Education, Music, and Communication Arts.
Scholarship Description: MARCS Institute is a vibrant interdisciplinary research institute of the University of Western Sydney (UWS) situated on the Bankstown, Campbelltown, Kingswood and Parramatta Campuses with members and collaborators from many disciplines: Medicine, Neuroscience, Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics, Linguistics, Psychology, Education, Music, and Communication Arts.

Scholarship Program: Joint Doctoral Programme in Neural Processing of Time funded by Erasmus Mundus 2012-2013
Employer: Erasmus Mundus
Level of Study: PhD Studentships
Subjects: Developmental, Molecular, Cellular & Behavioral Neuroscience, Chronobiology, Computational Neuroscience & Neurotechnology
Country: Europe and non-European Countries
Scholarship Description: The European Brain Council’s study of the economic burden of brain disorders showed that 12 major neurological diseases cost the European economy and national health systems nearly 400 billion euros in 2004, and that brain disorders affected 127 million Europeans in 2006 (European Journal of Neuroscience, Vol 33, p 767, 2011). Research programs at the forefront of neuroscience will have direct biomedical applications that improve quality of life for many people and address socio-economic challenges. NeuroTime students’ scholarships are awarded exclusively for a full-time enrolment in one of the projects. On an individual basis. This might be changed due to maternity leave, chronic illness, etc. Students benefiting from an Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate scholarship cannot benefit from another European Community grant while pursuing their Erasmus Mundus PhD studies.
