Neurosciences Foundation Exploratory Program (NFEP) is a specialized enrichment program for high school students (grades 10-12) interested in applying for Undergraduate University degree programs in scientific research, neuroscience, engineering, psychology or pre-med. The program specifically focuses on topics relevant to those students passionate about studying the brain.
There are two sessions offered at Stanford's Medical Campus, both on Tuesdays at 4-6pm. The first session (January - March 2019) is open to all students, and focused on teaching foundational knowledge and building relevant skills (i.e., coding), and the second session (March - May 2019) open to all female students, echoing session 1 curriculum, but emphasizing empowering advanced female high-school students with knowledge and confidence to be competitive in the sciences.
The enrollment cap will be kept small to ensure a customized experience for each student. Applications for Session 1 are due October 1st, and for Session 2 are due December 1st.
