All About Us
Welcome to Boston College Nu Rho Psi
Nu Rho Psi is the National Honor Society in Neuroscience, founded in 2006 by the Faculty for Undergraduate Neuroscience. It is an independent non-profit, grass-roots organization created by neuroscientists to support future neuroscientists. Membership is for life, and members are eligible to apply for grants and awards through Nu Rho Psi. Boston College's chapter was established in 2018 to support undergraduate and graduate students interested in neuroscience and is designated Epsilon in Massachusetts.
The purpose of Nu Rho Psi is to: (1) encourage professional interest and excellence in scholarship, particularly in neuroscience; (2) award recognition to students who have achieved such excellence in scholarship; (3) advance the discipline of neuroscience; (4) encourage intellectual and social interaction between students, faculty, and professionals in neuroscience and related fields; (5) promote career development in neuroscience and related fields; (6) increase public awareness of neuroscience and its benefits for the individual and society; and (7) encourage service to the community.
