Merrick Awards Announced for Undergraduate Research on Mind, Brain Interaction As part of an annual campaign to support undergraduate research on the interaction between the mind and brain, the Zanvyl Krieger Mind/Brain Institute announces the 1995 Robert G. Merrick Jr. Achievement Awards. Two prizes of $1,000 each will be awarded to undergraduates for research in the study of the brain and cognitive functions. There will be two types of Merrick achievement awards--one will be awarded to an undergraduate for research already undertaken at the interface between cognitive and brain functions; the other will be awarded to an undergraduate in support of costs associated with a proposed summer research project. Successful candidates will be chosen by a committee chaired by Guy McKhann, director of the Zanvyl Krieger Mind/Brain Institute. Applications--in the form of a letter of application, a research abstract or research proposal, plus two supporting faculty letters--should be submitted no later than Friday, April 7, to Dr. McKhann, 338 Krieger Hall, Homewood campus.
