Our Program

WiN’s mission is to build a diverse community of women leaders in neuroscience and neurology. Through summer internships, educational opportunities, and one-on-one mentoring, we ensure our young women “WiNterns” build the confidence and leadership skills necessary to realize their career goals.

A day in the life of a WiNtern is the perfect balance of intriguing and difficult.

What We OfferInternships, Mentorship, and Scholarships

WiN sponsors young women to participate in paid, 8-week internships working with scientists in the UT Department of Neuroscience and the Dell Medical School Department of Neurology.

Our internship program builds a pipeline of highly qualified, dedicated female professionals in these fields and offers an entry point to a lifetime community of support.

Key aspects of WiN’s internships include:

  • Working with a scientist
  • Gaining access to lab experience
  • Receiving one-on-one mentorship from faculty hosts

We also offer seminars on the basics of research, daily speakers from different areas in the neurological fields, and coaching in writing, speaking, and leadership.

And we engage with WiNterns along their career journeys, offering academic and professional development scholarships to offer support throughout their careers.
