APPLICATION DEADLINE EXTENSION - PhD Student Fellowships in Movement and
Rehabilitation Science at Northwestern University

The application deadline for PhD student fellowships in a newly established
specialization in Movement and Rehabilitation Science (MRS) within the
Northwestern University Interdepartmental Neuroscience (NUIN) Program
beginning in Fall, 2007 has been extended until January 31, 2007.

The MRS specialization in neuroscience is a PhD level interdisciplinary
focus of study within the NUIN umbrella program. Students interested in
earning a doctoral degree specialized in Movement and Rehabilitation
Neuroscience apply for admission to Northwestern University directly
through NUI (http://www.northwestern.edu/nuin/index.htm). The MRS specialty
draws students from diverse backgrounds and disciplines including physical
therapy, occupational therapy and other health professions, exercise
science, biomechanics, engineering, and the basic sciences. The program
focuses on research training, and content areas are created to match the
interests of both the student and sponsoring faculty member.

All admitted NUIN students specializing in MRS are given a graduate student
fellowship that covers tuition costs and a stipend for living. The stipend
will continue throughout the student's studies provided he/she remains in
good academic standing. Medical insurance is also provided.
