Undergraduate Training

University of Wisconsin – Madison: Psychology Research Experience Program (PREP)

The University of Wisconsin – Madison Psychology Research Experience Program (PREP) is currently accepting applications for the summer of 2018. This summer research opportunity program (SROP) offers a 10-week program of mentored research, with an emphasis on applying tools of data science to problems in psychology and neuroscience. It is tailored for individuals from groups historically underrepresented in our field: racial and ethnic minorities, first-generation college students, individuals from low income families, and individuals with disabilities. PREP covers all travel and living expenses, and offers a modest stipend. In addition to carrying out research at a top-ranked psychology department, participants will also interact with faculty and trainees associated with the NSF-supported LUCID graduate training program (“learning/understanding/cognition/intelligence/data science”). LUCID brings together expertise and resources from engineering, computer science, education psychology, and psychology, and offers such opportunities as bootcamps on technical skills (e.g., Matlab coding, multivariate analysis of neural datasets, high-throughput computing), and participation in the end-of-summer eLUCID8 conference (https://lucid.wisc.edu/). PREP students can also take advantage of numerous professional development and networking opportunities, and engage with a broader community of >100 students participating in one of the UW–Madison’s many SROPs.

**Unique for 2018**: PREP students will have full access to CogSci2018, taking place in Madison July 25-28.
