The Research Scholars Program (RSP), is a post-baccalaureate opportunity hosted in our Brain and Cognitive Sciences (BCS) complex at MIT. The program, jointly funded by The JPB Foundation, the BCS department, K. Lisa Yang, the McGovern Institute for Brain Research, and The Picower Institute for Learning and Memory is designed to provide outstanding recent college graduates from historically underrepresented minority groups and/or economically disadvantaged backgrounds with additional academic training, as they earn a full graduate-level stipend, to become competitive PhD applicants.
