Research Opportunities for Undergraduates

Gain Experience in Psychology Lab Research

One of the best ways to know if a career in personality and social psychology is for you is to get first-hand experience in an active psychology research laboratory. SPSP offers a Summer Program for Undergraduate Research (SPUR) that is for students from under-represented backgrounds. Below, we have also compiled listings for other research opportunities in psychology for undergraduate students. 

Please email us know if you know of other funded opportunities for undergraduate research or research opportunities for recent graduates and those taking a gap year between undergrad and graduate school.
