The Program in Interdisciplinary Education Research, the Department of Psychology, Human-Computer Interaction Institute, and the Neuroscience Institute at Carnegie Mellon University are excited to announce that applications are now being accepted to our fifth Summer Program for Undergraduate Researchers (SPUR).

This program supports our commitment to training a diverse set of leaders in the field of psychology, neuroscience, learning sciences, and related disciplines.

We encourage applications from students from underrepresented groups, including racial/ethnic minorities, first-generation college students, economically disadvantaged students, veterans, and students with disabilities. Students admitted into the program will spend 8 weeks during the summer working in a research laboratory at Carnegie Mellon University. Each student will receive a fellowship stipend of $3,000 for the eight-week of the SPUR program and apartment-style housing will also be provided.


Please forward this announcement to any student who might be interested.

Applications are due by February 24, 2020. More information about the program and instructions to apply are provided here.
