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. PREP features a balance of mentored laboratory research (approximately 30 hours/week) and a curriculum of scientific instruction, professional development and networking opportunities. See the link to "Student Research", left, for examples from the Summer 2011-2014 programs; see "Program Highlights" under the "About PREP" button for more specifics about the program. PREP is supported by the National Science Foundation through its Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) mechanism.

PREP is funded by the National Science Foundation, #1358340, and sponsored by the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
