The Society for Neuroscience, along with support from The Grass Foundation, the International Brain Research Organization, and the Universidad del Valle, provides a unique training opportunity for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows from Latin America and the Caribbean.

Eligible candidates will join in conversations on Neuronline with trainees and faculty from the region, and participate in webinars on professional development and scientific topics.
