Ciearra Smith has been selected by the Society for Neuroscience (SFN) as a Fellow in the Neuroscience Scholars Program (NSP). The NSP provides neuroscience trainees from underrepresented and diverse backgrounds with career development and networking opportunities to help them reach their career goals. Only 15 such fellows were selected from applicants across the United States. The award will pay for Ciearra to travel to the next two Annual Meetings of the SFN and will provide her a formal mentoring team with experience in diversity mentoring. They also will present their work at the SFN meeting in an NSP-specific poster session.
