Developed by FENS and IBRO-PERC, the ‘Slots in NENS courses’ programme aims to support MSc and PhD neuroscience students currently studying in Europe to broaden their knowledge and acquire international experience by participating in short courses organised by the NENS schools.

StipendsFENS and IBRO-PERC provide stipends of 750 EUR for Master and/or PhD students based in Europe interested in attending the yearly awarded NENS courses. Through these stipends FENS and IBRO-PERC aim to encourage and promote international experience of students*.

* Students who are currently residing or studying in the country where the NENS course takes place are not eligible for a FENS and IBRO-PERC stipend for that specific course).
