The summer science fellowship is an intensive summer training program that places 12 psychology students in the laboratories in various universities in the Washington D.C. area. SSF offers students the opportunity to equip themselves with skills essential to succeed in graduate school, and gives students who plan to pursue advanced degrees in psychological science the opportunity to be mentored by nationally-known faculty. APA pays students a summer salary, as well as covers all travel and living expenses.

Summer Research Program 2009
The Center for Neural Science hosts a summer research experience program for undergraduates with an interest in neuroscience. Students apply for positions in a 10-week summer program during which they actively participate in research projects in the laboratories of New York University science faculty.
We match students to laboratories primarily on the basis of their background preparation and areas of interest. They work either directly with faculty or with graduate students or postdoctoral fellows. Each student conducts a research project under the direction of his or her mentor. The projects involve on-going research in the host laboratory.
The students are involved in all phases of the research process from experimental design to data analysis and communication of results. In addition to the research experience, the students meet regularly for neuroscience seminars at which faculty and graduate students of the NYU research community from the downtown Washington Square Campus and the NYU Medical School present summaries of their work, and the summer students discuss their own projects.
At the end of the program, the students each give a presentation of their own work. They prepare an abstract and write a journal-style report on their work, and give a 20-minute oral presentation in a special summer research conference. The primary goal of this program is to extend the Center's robust neuroscience research opportunities to non-NYU students. Financial support is available to non-NYU students through the NSF REU-Site Grant.
The Summer Student Fellowship Program is for Bright, Motivated Students who are undergraduate juniors or seniors, or first year graduate or medical students and are considering a career in neuroscience.
IES Brain Research Foundation Summer Fellows will receive a stipend of $2400 and are expected to spend 8-10 weeks (full time) during the summer, being trained in a first rate laboratory.
Applicants should arrange training with and be accepted by a faculty sponsor who is the head of a laboratory at a University, Medical School, or Research Insituted in the United States.

The SRI experience is designed to give the interested student hands on experience in the research process central to experimental psychology. SRI students will be working in the laboratory of a faculty member of the University of South Carolina Department of Psychology.
The Summer Research Institute (SRI) spans an eight week period during which the 10 selected students are engaged in an intensive research experience in fundamental areas of psychology. The program consists of two types of activities. The primary activity is spending time working in an active research lab. Duties include running subjects, developing experimental materials, performing experimental procedures, tabulating data, analyzing data, library research, and report writing. The student should anticipate devoting 35 hours a week to work in the laboratory. The second activity consists of participating in a 2-hour per week practicum courseon research methods and data analysis, as well as attending weekly colloquia in which faculty present their research.
Selected participants will spend 8 weeks learning state-of-the-art research techniques and working on projects in the research laboratories of the Department of Psychology. If selected, you will benefit from...

Integrated Biological Sciences Summer Research Program (IBS-SRP)
In the Integrated Biological Sciences Summer Research Program, students do independent research projects with faculty mentors for ten weeks in one of seven research areas:
In addition to meeting with a weekly interdisciplinary group, students prepare research proposals, final papers, and oral presentations summarizing their work. Students also have the opportunity to explore the UW and Madison.
The range of biological research areas in which students may participate is quite extensive. Applicants are encouraged to learn about faculty doing research in their areas of interest, and identify their top choices for potential mentors in the application.
Applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents between their sophomore and senior years who have a grade point average of at least 3.0 and strong interest in a career in biological research. Selection and laboratory placement of students will take place in January, February, and March. Applicants who are not placed will be notified by the end of April.
