Description:
The Psychology Research Experience Program (PREP) provides intensive mentoring and experience in scientific research and professional development to undergraduates from historically underrepresented populations - racial and ethnic students of color, students from a low socio-economic background, first-generation college students, and students affected by a disability - 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. It is supported by the National Science Foundation through its Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) mechanism.
