Summer Programs for Undergraduate Research (SPUR)

Program purpose.

The UCLA Summer Programs for Undergraduate Research (SPUR) offer upper division undergraduate students with outstanding academic potential the opportunity to work closely with faculty mentors on research projects.  The programs are designed for students who wish to learn more about the graduate school experience and possibly pursue an academic career in teaching and research.  Opportunities are available in virtually all academic fields (e.g., arts, humanities, social sciences, life sciences, health sciences, physical sciences, etc.).

Student participants in many SPUR programs will work with a faculty mentor with special expertise and interests matched, as closely as possible, to the student’s research interests and career goals. Most, but not all, SPUR programs pair students with a faculty mentor.  Students will either assist the faculty member in an ongoing research project or work collaboratively with the mentor in designing a new project of mutual interest.

Most SPUR programs feature seminars on:

  • writing and research skills
  • strategies for enhancing success in applying to graduate school
  • graduate school funding opportunities
  • opportunities for informal discussion with UCLA graduate students
  • academic career opportunities
  • cultural and educational activities

Summer research opportunities for undergraduates.

Summer is a great time to get involved in research, whether it's in a field you intend to study seriously, or in one you just want to try out. There are many opportunities for funding, as you'll see below, and you are encouraged to take advantage of these. Note that most REU application deadlines run from mid January to early March , so you should get started in early January (or late in the fall semester if some of the early deadlines mentioned below are relevant). In addition to being a fun way to spend your summer, a research job will (1) allow you to learn lots of things, (2) give you a flavor of what grad school and industry are like, if these are in your plans, and (3) allow various scientists to get to know you and your work, which is always a good thing (actually, a necessary thing) when it comes time to obtain letters of recommendation. Some programs require you to have completed your sophomore or junior year, but there are also plenty that are available for freshmen. So if you're interested in doing research, there's no excuse for not getting started early. Start searching around, an join in the fun! Your summer research can be funded in five basic ways. The funds may come from:

  • An REU program (this money comes from the NSF).
  • Other organized programs that aren't REUs.
  • The Physics Department.
  • Various Harvard fellowships/programs.
  • A specific faculty member (that is, from internal lab funds).

In more detail, these five basic ways to get funding are:

  • REU Programs: Professors throughout the country can apply for "Research Experiences for Undergraduates" (REU) grants from the National Science Foundation (NSF). Undergraduates in turn can apply to these programs for the opportunity to do summer research. There are many programs in a variety of scientific fields. The application deadlines generally run from mid January to early March. The webpage with the list of all the existing programs is: NSF's Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program There are lots and lots of fields listed here, including Physics, Materials Research, Astronomy, Chemistry, Computer Science, Biology, and many more. So don't just look at the Physics ones! Programs are sometimes added late to the list, so check it periodically for changes.

  • The Harvard Physics Department has some funds available for summer research on campus. The deadline for applying is Sunday, March 24, 2024. David Morin will send out a link to the application in mid March. The basic strategy for finding a professor and forming a proposal is to look around for a few professors whose work interests you, and to then start knocking on doors and sending out emails. Informal, but effective. See this list of the Physics faculty , and also this list organized by Research area . These funds are limited, which means that the larger the number of students who stay on campus, the smaller the funding amount will be. You are therefore encouraged to apply to REU programs. If you don't have a specific reason to stay at Harvard over the summer, it would be a shame to ignore the mindboggling number of REUs out there. If you decide to decline them in favor of a lab here at Harvard, that's fine. But for one summer, you may want to take advantage of the opportunity to explore things and visit another university. Travel around the world, see interesting places and people, and do physics. One caveat: If you are planning on going to physics grad school, you should definitely spend at least one summer here at Harvard (perhaps two), bookended with one or two 90r's before and/or after, to have an extended period of time for your research. If you do reseach here at Harvard with Physics Dept funding, your overall funding will likely come from a combination of sources: Physics Dept, HCRP, and internal lab funds.  
  • Harvard has various other souces of funding.  There are many programs listed on the Undergraduate Research and Fellowships (URAF) page . In particular: 1) The Harvard College Research Program is an important source of funding. Their deadline is also Sunday, March 24, 2024. To be eligible for Physics funding, you  must apply to HCRP. 2) The  PRISE Program offers housing along with social and educational events. You are strongly encouraged to apply. The deadline is early: Tuesday, February 13, 2024. 3) You should also consider applying for the Herchel Smith Fellowship . The deadline is very early: Sunday, February 4, 2024. This is a fantastic fellowship. If you get it, it basically takes care of all your summer-money worries. 4) If you are interested in going abroad, you should consider the Weissman  Fellowship.  5) Other Harvard sources of funding can be found on the Office of Career Services page and on the above URAF page.  
  • Internal lab funds:   You can avoid all the above funding issues by going directly to a professor who happens to have some grant money available for undergraduate summer research. Some do, some don't. This strategy definitely requires some running around. But note well -- it would be very unwise to use only this strategy unless you have an early guarantee that it's going to work.

Contact David Morin if you have any questions. Good luck!!

Summer Picnic Helps Kick-off Summer of Research for Veterinary Student Scholars

Make a gift support the college.

Participants in the 2024 Veterinary Research Scholars Summer Program gathered for a group photo at the kick-off cookout May 30 at historic Fort Ouiatenon on the banks of the Wabash River.

Beautiful summer weather provided a perfect setting at the Fort Ouiatenon historical park in Tippecanoe County for the annual cookout hosted by the Purdue Veterinary Medicine Office of Research in honor of this year’s summer research scholars.  The Veterinary Scholars Summer Research Program provides opportunities for current Purdue DVM students and undergrads from Purdue and other universities to explore careers in clinical, diagnostic, and basic biomedical research.  The students work with faculty mentors to design and conduct summer research projects, while also participating in weekly seminars as well as other learning activities.  The summer picnic Thursday, May 30, brought together student participants and faculty mentors for food, games and fellowship.

Gabrielle Bressler of the Purdue DVM Class of 2026 and Associate Dean for Research Harm HogenEsch demonstrate exemplary concentration as they teamed-up for a game of cornhole.

The participants in this year’s Veterinary Scholars Summer Research Program include ten Purdue DVM students – seven from the Class of 2027 and three from the Class of 2026.  Additionally, there are six undergraduate students, including three from Purdue and one each from Prairie View A&M University in Texas, Vanderbilt University in Tennessee, and Franklin College in Indiana. The participants are being mentored by 16 faculty, representing the Departments of Basic Medical Sciences , Veterinary Clinical Sciences, Comparative Pathobiology , and the Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratory .  Dr. Harm HogenEsch, Purdue Veterinary Medicine associate dean for research and Distinguished Professor of Immunopathology, and Dr. Eli Asem, professor of physiology in the Department of Basic Medical Sciences, organize the program by matching students and faculty. PVM Office of Research staff member Erin Lane provides administrative and logistical assistance.

This year’s program began with an introduction and orientation session May 29.  Seminars involving informal presentations and discussions with scientists on different topics related to biomedical research are held each Wednesday.  On Wednesday, June 26, the students will attend an all-day seminar jointly conducted by Purdue and the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine at the Illinois campus in Urbana-Champaign.  The Purdue Summer Research Program will conclude with a Research Poster Session scheduled for 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Tuesday, August 6 in Lynn G119/155.  Then, the veterinary student participants will attend the Boehringer Ingelheim – National Veterinary Scholars Symposium, which will be held in St. Paul, Minnesota August 8-10.  A special thank you to Boehringer Ingelheim for serving as the college’s funding partner for the program, and to the PVM faculty members serving as mentors. In addition, one student received stipend support from the Morris Animal Foundation and one student received support from the American Veterinary Medical Foundation.

Strategies for Summer Research

  • Ask good questions, even after you’ve started researching. 
  • Follow-up by email to confirm your understanding of the assignment, due date, and final work product expected. 
  • Think about and plan your research strategy before going online and set time limits for researching. Everything will usually take longer than you estimate.
  • Use folders on your computer or in the research systems to keep your materials but also keep detailed notes about your research process, search results, and what you found.
  • Stop researching when you see the same results using different methods, confirmed you’re on the right track, and before you feel completely ready to stop.
  • After you’ve started writing, return to researching to fill in the holes in your research and writing. 
  • Start by searching for legal concepts and narrow for relevant facts.
  • Use Topic and Key Numbers and Headnotes.
  • Use the One Good Case Method.
  • Confirm your cases are still good law by Shepardizing or Key Citing.

Clinical psychology student awarded VA summer research fellowship

summer research

University of Tulsa second-year doctoral student Melody Robinson’s dedication to clinical psychology and interest in research conducted by the Tulsa Institute of Trauma, Adversity, & Injustice lab and the Trauma Research, Assessment, Prevention & Treatment Center has opened the door to new and exciting opportunities.

Recently, Robinson was selected for a summer research fellowship through the Minneapolis Veterans Affairs Medical Center. This nationwide competitive program selects three graduate students for a 10-week paid position to conduct veteran-focused research.

Robinson will be paired with a current VA faculty member to conduct research, attend trainings and seminars on professional development, writings, and statistics. She will also have the opportunity to mentor undergraduate students participating within the program and present her research by the time the fellowship ends.

The faculty at the Minneapolis facility study a range of questions related to veteran populations, such as post-traumatic stress disorder, suicide risk and prevention, traumatic brain injury, cognitive aging, severe mental illness, and more.

“I am incredibly excited to expand my professional network, receive mentorship training and experience, and strengthen my research skills,” said Robinson. “I am also very eager to represent and orient myself as a disabled researcher in a professional space as so few of us exist or are represented in the field.”

Her hope is to one day develop a career in research and clinical work to assist and advocate for survivors of interpersonal violence. “With a clinical psychology degree, I feel I will have the flexibility and training to assist survivors, examine effective interventions, and contribute to psychological research,” she said.

Summer research brings undergraduates from across the nation

Group of students participating in summer undergraduate research programs pose for a picture.

Sixty-seven students from New York to Southern California and Florida to Washington have arrived at WSU Pullman to participate in summer undergraduate research programs with mentoring faculty.

“They represent 42 universities in 21 states and will take part in several projects focused on such topics as gerontology, crop resiliency, waves in the universe and technology, plant genomes, and race and policing,” said Jeremy Lessmann, director of the Office of Undergraduate Research, which helps to coordinate the summer programs. Many of the projects are transdisciplinary and some are in partnership with other colleges and agencies.

Supporters of the programs include the National Science Foundation, US Department of Agriculture (USDA)-National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA), National Institutes of Health, and professors’ own project funds.

The students live in residence halls, work in faculty research facilities, attend weekly brownbag lunch sessions with guest speakers, and socialize with their lab teammates and new friends. On Aug. 2, at the end of their programs, they will share their research findings at a symposium and poster event.

“WSU Pullman has offered summer research programs to students from across the country for decades, and every year is the ‘best ever,’” said Lessmann. “Our faculty and staff enjoy and benefit from the experience as much as the students. Summer research is a tradition.”

The students’ home institutions include Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Harvey Mudd College, Purdue University, the University of Michigan, Pennsylvania State University, and others. There are also students from Eastern Washington, Gonzaga, Whitworth, WSU, and Wenatchee Valley College.

The Aug. 2 symposium is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Smith CUE Atrium at no charge.

WISLI Instructor Event on June 28, 2024: Recent Research in WISLI Programs

Recent Research in WISLI Programs Student Proficiency in Speaking and Student Engagement in Language Learning Activities Dianna Murphy and Jana Martin University of Wisconsin-Madison Language Institute Friday, June 28, 2024 2:30-3:30 p.m. Central Audience: WISLI Instructors [Location and Zoom link provided to instructors via e-mail]

WISLI programs are a national treasure, offering access to instruction in less and least commonly taught languages to students and working professionals from across the United States. With the breadth of LCTLs offered through WISLI, the intensive summer programs are also a productive site for research on LCTL teaching and learning. This presentation will share findings from a recent, multi-year mixed methods research study situated in WISLI programs in 14 languages that investigated student speaking proficiency outcomes in both face-to-face and online formats and explored student self-reported engagement in different language learning and language use activities. The study was funded by grants from the U.S. Department of Education and ACTFL.

Dianna Murphy (PhD, Slavic Linguistics) is director of the University of Wisconsin-Madison Language Institute, co-director of the Russian Flagship Program, and a core member of the Second Language Acquisition Doctoral Program. Her research focuses on U.S. postsecondary language education, with recent studies looking at national trends, learning outcomes, and language program design.

Jana Martin is associate director of the UW-Madison Language Institute and coordinator of the SLA PhD Program. Her native language is Slovak, and she graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a PhD in German and a minor in Second Language Acquisition. Jana’s research includes the exploration of factors associated with student engagement and mutual understanding in postsecondary educational contexts.

Pelotonia unveils new cycling fundraisers for pediatric cancer research

For 15 years, adults all around Ohio have come together to raise money and fight for hope, now kids can too.

Pelotonia has partnered with the Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center to host five kids-ride events under the banner of Pelotonia Kids, with 100% of the money going toward pediatric cancer research at Nationwide Children’s Hospital.  

“All of our fundraising that we do at Pelotonia goes to cancer research at Ohio State and this time, all the kids' rides will be directed to that research that’s focused on childhood cancers,” said Katie Wilson, director of marketing and communications at Pelotonia.  

On top of this, many of the events are centered around local events, creating greater engagement.  

“The Upper Arlington one is at a middle school around the Fourth of July celebrations that happen around town that weekend, so there’s a lot of community involvement and excitement around that,” said Wilson. 

“It was a pretty audacious task at the time, launching a bike ride and, you know, trying to convince people to ride bikes around central Ohio for fundraising, for cancer research,” said Pelotonia CEO Joe Apgar. 

Despite the challenge, Pelotonia came out swinging from the start. In their launch year of 2009, Pelotonia had 2,200 participants and raised $4.5 million dollars, far exceeding Apgar’s expectations. 

Helping those who need: Pajamas just the start for Share Your Story Foundation to help those battling cancer

"It was actually one of the largest first-year philanthropy events in the country back in 2009,” said Apgar. 

Today, Pelotonia has raised over $283 million for cancer research and the hope is to keep that number growing with the introduction of Pelotonia Kids.  

Apgar and Wilson have stressed the principal role that community members played in making this happen.  

“It’s based on existing rides that had already been happening as fundraisers,” said Wilson. 

Many Pelotonia volunteers were creating family-friendly events where children could participate on their own or alongside adults, and Pelotonia noticed. 

“It was sort of a match made in heaven for us to just almost formalize and really brand what had been started by the community. Pelotonia's Ride Weekend has always been a family affair,” said Apgar.  

Despite that, Apgar said that historically, the involvement of children under 14 was relegated to spectating and cheering, so it was time for a change. Apgar said Pelotonia is thrilled to provide kids under 14 with a more extensive chance to participate. 

“I think this gives kids an opportunity to really get involved in cycling and philanthropy and fundraising and ultimately for a really good cause,” said Apgar. 

Looking ahead

June 15: Pedal for Pancakes , Capital University, East Main Street and College Avenue, Bexley, hosted by Team Bexley.

July 6: Pelotonia Kids UA , Jones Middle School, 2100 Arlington Ave., Upper Arlington, hosted by Sarah Jane and Paul Germain.

Fake News Reports and Videos Seek to Undermine the Paris Olympics

Russian propagandists are spoofing broadcasters and mimicking French and U.S. intelligence agencies to stoke fear about security at the Games.

Bleachers and scaffolding surround a statue of a herald on a winged horse. A gold-tipped obelisk can be seen in the distance.

By Julian E. Barnes and Steven Lee Myers

Julian E. Barnes, who covers U.S. intelligence agencies, and Steven Lee Myers, who covers misinformation, have been reporting on Russian efforts to influence the 2024 presidential election.

With its athletes barred from competing in the Summer Olympics under the country’s flag, Russia has turned its fury on the Games and this year’s host, Paris.

Russian propagandists have created an hourlong documentary, spoofed news reports and even mimicked French and American intelligence agencies to issue fake warnings urging people to avoid the Games, according to a report released on Sunday by Microsoft.

The report details the disinformation campaign created by a group the company calls Storm-1679. The campaign appears to have accelerated since March, flooding social media with short videos raising alarms about possible terrorist attacks and stoking fears about safety.

The operation, while aimed at the Games, is using various techniques to spread disinformation that could also be employed in European and U.S. elections.

American and French officials have tracked the campaign. One American official said that Russian disinformation, spread by the Kremlin via social media, continued to threaten the security of the United States and its allies.

The group has also tried to goad fact checkers into examining its claims, hoping to use the attention to spread the disinformation to new audiences as it is called out.
