Undergraduate Research Program

Summer Programs

Summer research programs are full-time immersive research experiences where selected students are matched with a mentor to join their research team and work on a project for a fixed term (often 9-10 weeks).

These programs usually require a formal application process and may be open to students outside of the institution offering the program.

URP Summer Programs

The URP offers two summer research programs open to current UW undergraduate students. Contact urp@uw.edu if you have questions about these programs!
