Weinberg Institute for Cognitive Science Student Grants/Awards-328717 - University of Michigan


Weinberg Institute for Cognitive Science Student Grants/Awards-328717

Today at U-M the study of language, behavior, moral decision-making, and artificial intelligence have converged in the cutting-edge field of cognitive science. Launched in 2014, the popularity of the U-M Cognitive Science major is demonstrated in the approximately 200 students currently studying the human mind through Michigan’s world-class curriculum.

Many students major in Cognitive Science because they’re looking for a field that includes multiple perspectives on how the human mind works and provides real-world engagement opportunities that transcend the classroom. To support this, the Weinberg Institute provides funding for students’ participation in laboratory research internships, study-abroad opportunities, and attendance at national cognitive science conferences. Activities that can have long-lasting positive impacts on students’ career and research trajectories.

“Throughout my entire time at U-M, I had the opportunity to participate in undergraduate research. My investigations, one of which became my Cognitive Science Honors thesis, challenged me to think critically, engage with mentors on and off of campus, produce presentations and publications, and so much more.”

“It is difficult to put into words the gratitude I feel towards the faculty and staff on the 9th floor of Weiser Hall, and those distributed throughout numerous departments across campus. Cognitive Science made the Michigan Difference to me, and I am so proud to be an alumna of this university, and of the Weinberg Institute in particular. Thank you not only for my undergraduate experiences, but for setting me up for success in my future endeavors! Go blue, go Cognitive Science!”
