I‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ am applying for a summer research program at Princeton and they are requesting a Personal statement that is exactly 750 works! This program is called the Princeton Neuroscience Institute Summer Internship Program. Description Of The Program: Princeton Neuroscience Institute (PNI) is offering a summer internship program for highly motivated undergraduates, providing education and hands-on research experience in the field of neuroscience.

 Participants will closely collaborate with students and faculty at PNI on original research projects, and thereby gain invaluable first-hand experience on what it is like to be a neuroscientist. Summer interns also will participate in group educational activities, including weekly foundational overview lectures from faculty, lab meetings with the researchers with whom they will work, journal club reading groups, plus special forums on topics such as career advice and graduate school application preparation. Applicants must be current undergraduates, US citizens, or permanent residents. The program offers a comp‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍etitive stipend and covers travel and housing expenses for visiting students. I have not prior experience performing research however I am a quick learner and I am great at teamwork. 

The questions are: *academic background – I an currently studying at Moravian University. I am major in Neuroscience and plan the minor in genetics. *research interests – I am interested in researching brain tumors and the relationship between them when it comes to genetics. *career goals – I am going to enter in a PhD/MD program this way I will be able to work on both sides of my research. *reasons for applying to the program – 

This program looked to be the best for students that have no prier expirees doing research. I also feel that it would be the best to teach me how to do research. *how your participation in the REU program may assist in attaining your future ambitions – This program is the best way for me to get hands on experience doing research. This will help me in the future in many ways. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍.
