ABOUT PREP
Program Dates: May 29th, 2018 – August 4th, 2018 

The Psychology Research Experience Program (PREP) provides intensive mentoring and experience in scientific research and professional development to undergraduates from historically underrepresented populations -- those from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, those from low-income backgrounds, those with disabilities, and first-generation college students -- who have expressed and demonstrated an interest in a career in scientific psychology. Beginning in the summer of 2018, PREP will have a focus on integrating principles and methods of data science into the study of psychology and neuroscience. The program features a balance of mentored laboratory research (approximately 30 hours/week), intensive "bootcamps" on technical skills (e.g., Matlab programming and high-throughput computing), faculty presentations, and professional development and networking opportunities. See the link to "PREP Journal" on the left for examples from the Summer 2011-2017 programs; see "Program Highlights" under the "About PREP" link for more specifics about the program.
