Summer Neuroscience Program (SNP)

The Summer Neuroscience Program (SNP) at The Rockefeller University is a two-week science outreach program for NYC public high schoolers. Led by graduate students, the program takes a look at ongoing research in neuroscience in an effort to understand how our brain works and how it relates to our daily life. We aim to introduce students to the brain, while emphasizing how many exciting, open questions remain.

In SNP students will:

  • participate in a series of interactive lectures
  • dissect a brain
  • read and present a scientific article
  • design an original neuroscience experiment
  • meet with Rockefeller scientists
  • visit research facilities

Applications for SNP summer 2022 are now closed.

Applications for summer 2023 will open in early January.

NOTE: SNP summer 2022 will be held on campus, barring any unforeseen changes in COVID rates or Rockefeller policy. Vaccination will be required for all participants.


SNP 2022 will take place August 15-26, meeting Monday – Friday, 9:30 am to 4:00 pm at the Rockefeller University in Manhattan. All expenses are covered (e.g. MTA passes, meals, and all necessary equipment and supplies). Please note that accepted applicants will be required to commit to attending the entire program in person, barring any emergencies.

We seek motivated, mature, and inquisitive students, irrespective of previous scholastic achievement or experience with science. We are particularly interested in applications from students with otherwise limited opportunities to explore their scientific interests. To be eligible for participation, students must be enrolled in a New York City public school, and must be at least 16 years of age at the start of the program — we cannot make exceptions!

Interested students must complete the online student application and have a teacher complete the reference form. Incomplete applications missing either form will not be considered. A subset of applicants will be contacted by the SNP directors in early April to arrange an interview.
