Research Programs, Conferences, and Grants
SRP 99 courses are where many students begin doing research. In SRP 99 courses, students work in a faculty mentor’s lab assisting in hands-on research.
The UCLA Psychology Research Opportunity Programs (PROPS) is an excellent opportunity for undergraduates to begin their research careers and to acquire the needed experience for pursuing advanced studies in Psychology. PROPS provides a stipend (up to $2,000) to historically underrepresented students or those with a demonstrated financial need to support them while they work in research labs of UCLA Psychology faculty during the Winter and Spring Quarters of each year.
The Psychology Undergraduate Research Conference provides opportunities for undergraduate research assistants to develop their presentation skills and share their research efforts with their peers and colleagues.
Open to all UCLA undergraduates engaged in research and creative projects, Undergraduate Research Week provides opportunities for hundreds of UCLA students to present their work to the campus and broader community as oral presentations, posters, and performances. The submission deadline is April 15 for the mid-May conference.
