Training Grants

Graduate and postdoctoral training in psychology is significantly enhanced by our training grant offerings.

Vision Training Grant

The Vision Training Grant aims to train graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to understand the mechanisms of vision through physiological and anatomical investigations. A central mission of the Vanderbilt Vision Research Center (VVRC) is to provide pre- and postdoctoral training centered on perception and system level research for the next generation of vision scientists. Trainees attend a weekly vision seminar series (Vanderbilt Visionaries) and are required to enroll in a semester-long course, The Visual System. The Vanderbilt Vision Research Center, funded by a core grant from the National Eye Institute, also provides predoctoral and postdoctoral students with resources relevant to their training.
