Diversity Program and Fellowship Opportunities

NCM recognizes the importance of diversity and inclusion in fostering a thriving scientific community. New in 2018, NCM has established a number of program to help further the diversity within the motor control community.

Support for Faculty at Predominantly Undergraduate Institutions

Faculty members conducting research into motor control at Predominantly Undergraduate Institutions are eligible for a fellowship of $1,500.  Up to three fellowships will be offered for the 2018 Annual Meeting.
