Summer Research Opportunities Program-
The University of Wisconsin-Madison offers a number of Summer Research
Opportunities to undergraduate students. It is a unique chance for undergraduates
to work closely with faculty mentors and graduate students in their major
discipline. Students accepted into research programs are matched with faculty
whose expertise and interests match the student’s research interest.
Students gain valuable skills for success in post-graduate studies and careers
in their chosen field. Upon completing their summer research, students have
the opportunity to present and receive reviews of their individual work.

Biological Sciences Summer Research Program (IBS-SRP)
Janet Branchaw, PhD, Director email@example.com
Lucas Moyer-Horner, Coordinator firstname.lastname@example.org
Students complete independent research projects with faculty mentors in
disciplinary sub-groups (listed below). All students meet weekly as an interdisciplinary
group to discuss the research process, evolutionary theory and how it relates
to their research projects, and graduate school and careers in research.

The Psychology Research Experience Program (PREP) will provide intensive mentoring and experience in scientific research and in professional development to undergraduates from historically underrepresented populations – racial and ethnic minorities, low-income, 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 hrs./week) and a curriculum of scientific instruction, professional development, and networking opportunities. It is supported by the National Science Foundation through its Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) mechanism.
Research Experience for Undergraduates
Eric Hooper , Director firstname.lastname@example.org
The Departments of Astronomy and Physics jointly host an REU program in astrophysics. Students work closely with faculty or research scientist on research projects for presentation.
Students participate in research projects in microbiology, biochemistry,
molecular biology, and related fields. In addition to working on individual
independent research projects with faculty, post docs and graduate students,
seminars and other enrichment activities are available.
SERP provides promising minority undergraduate students who are interested
in pursuing graduate studies with a valuable opportunity to be mentored
by distinguished professors and engage in independent research within the
School of Education. The departments within the School of Education have
consistently ranked best in the nation.
Kelly Burton, Program Director, email@example.com
Undergraduates explore research experience available as a graduate student in the College of Engineering. Work under the direction of faculty as on a laboratory research team. The program also addresses the graduate application process.
