The US-Canada Regional Committee for IBRO (USCRC) provides fellowship support for students from developing nations who are accepted into the eligible neuroscience-related summer courses at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, and at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in Cold Spring Harbor New York.

These grants are an effort to enable the most meritorious alumni of IBRO Neuroscience Schools and other outstanding young scientists to gain "capstone" experiences in leading training programs. These experiences are intended to benefit scientists who will continue to study and work in less financially advantaged regions such as those in Latin America, Africa, Central and Eastern Europe, and Asia/Pacific.
The following IBRO Fellows received grants in 2014 to attend courses at the Marine Biological Laboratory, Woods Hole, USA:
