What Your Donation Can Support

The Undergraduate Interdepartmental Program of Neuroscience at UCLA invites students into an exploration of the nervous system on many different levels, from “Molecules to Mind.” Donations to the program are vital to our mission of providing students with current knowledge about brain structure and function from both a basic research and a clinical perspective, and allowing them to use this knowledge in completing independent or small-group capstone research projects. Your donation, regardless of amount, has a powerful impact and is greatly appreciated. You may make a gift to be used for student support through the Undergraduate NSIDP Scheibel Award, or to be used in the area of greatest need. Please click on the “Donate Now” button to make a donation to one of these programs.
