The Department of Psychology and Program in Interdisciplinary Education Research (PIER) are excited to announce that applications are now being accepted for the 2021 Summer Program for Undergraduate Researchers (SPUR).
SPUR is designed to increase the participation of students from underrepresented groups (including racial/ethnic minorities, first-generation college students, economically disadvantaged students, veterans, and students with disabilities) in graduate school training by providing undergraduate students with research apprenticeship experience during the summer.
This program is a good fit for undergraduate students who may be considering graduate training in one or more of the following disciplines: psychology, learning science, education, cognitive science, cognitive and educational neuroscience, and human-computer interaction. Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, SPUR 2021 may be offered on a remote basis.
Students accepted into SPUR will receive a fellowship stipend of $3,000. Apartment-style housing will be provided if SPUR 2021 takes place on campus. Guidance and supervision of the research projects will be provided by a faculty member as well as postdoctoral fellows and/or advanced graduate students.
Applications are being accepted until December 15, 2020. Please share this opportunity with interested students.
