Congratulations to Yessica Santana Agreda on being named as one of the SfN Neuroscience Scholars Program Fellows for 2021–23. Yessica is a doctoral student in the Neuroscience Graduate Program at OHSU.
Administered by the Society for Neuroscience, the NSP is a two-year online training program open to graduate students and postdoctoral researchers who are underrepresented in the field of neuroscience. It is funded by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS). While all eligible candidates are invited to participate in online events as Associates, only 18 top candidates are selected each year to participate as Fellows and receive additional benefits such as professional development funds, a mentoring team, and travel stipends to attend SfN annual meetings.
