Summer Research Internship $$$

Applications are currently being accepted for the 2018 SPSP Summer Program for Undergraduate Research (SPUR). 

SPUR provides an intensive summer research internship in the methods of social and personality psychology for undergraduates from underrepresented ethnic groups. Participating students conduct hands-on research and research-related activities full-time for eight weeks, working closely with a social-personality psychology faculty mentor at the mentor’s university. The program allows students to participate in an active lab with a research focus not available at their home institution.

Applicants must be graduating in Summer 2018, Fall 2018, or Spring 2019 and ideally intending to apply to graduate school in social or personality psychology within one to two years. Spring 2018 graduates with a graduation date before July 2018 are not eligible. Up to ten students will be selected for the 2018 program, and each participant will receive a $3000 stipend to cover living expenses and up to $500 to cover travel to and from their summer research site.

Interested applicants can learn more about the program or apply today.  Applicants will be asked to identify up to five potential faculty mentors from the list of current mentors. All materials, including a letter of recommendation from a faculty member at each applicant’s home institution, must be submitted by November 10, 2017.

Please share. If you have questions, please contact spur@spsp.org.
