support of costs associated with a proposed summer research

     Successful candidates will be chosen by a committee chaired
by Guy McKhann, director of the Zanvyl Krieger Mind/Brain

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.
