Stibel Dennett Consortium for Brain and Cognitive Science

Student Fellows

There are a number of ways that undergraduate and graduate level students can be involved with the work of the Consortium. Students in the Tufts Departments of Psychology, Computer Science, Child Study and Human Development, Education, and Philosophy should contact their advisors to find ways to get involved with the research groups of the Consortium's leadership or affiliated faculty. There are also two donor-established funds that provide financial support to students conducting research in the key areas of the Consortium: the Stibel Fellowship Fund for PhD students and the Fowler Family Summer Scholars Fund for undergraduates.

Stibel Fellowship Fund

The Stibel Fellowship Fund was established in 2016 with a charitable contribution from Jeffrey Stibel, A95, to support fellowships in the Cognitive Science PhD Program at Tufts University. For more information, please contact Cognitive Science PhD Program Director JP de Ruiter: jp.deruiter@tufts.edu
