Western Kentucky University will be hosting a Summer 2016 National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program in psychology. The theme of the program is Advancing Psychological Research with Technology. Through this program, 8 undergraduate students will complete a 10-week internship, where they will each work closely with a faculty mentor on one or more research projects. Students will also participate in developmental workshops and activities related to topics such as ethics, research methods, statistics, computer software, and presentation skills.
Program participants will receive a $5,000 stipend, free on-campus housing, reimbursement for travel to/from the program, and funds to travel to a national or international conference upon completion of the program. More information about the program can be found on the program website – http://www.wku.edu/psychological-sciences/reu/overview.php.
Students enrolled at colleges or universities with limited research opportunities, first generation college students, racial minorities, and students with one or more disabilities are especially encouraged to apply. The application deadline is March 1, 2016.
