Senior students in the Neuroscience 490 course were given the opportunity to display their senior project posters in the 2011 Poster Presentation/Neuroscience Student Recognition Dessert on April 8,2011.  In addition to the poster displays and discussions, graduating seniors were given a booklet featuring each graduate's research abstract and career plans following their May 7 graduation from the CVM/WSU Neuroscience Program.

Four individual students were given Neuroscience scholarships, including Rachel Wanty, who was awarded the Peter A. Zornes Memorial Neuroscience Scholarship, and Erik Larson, Jonathan Stewart, and Stephenie Le'Von McCray, who were each given a Neuroscience Endowed Scholarship for the 2011-2012 academic year.
