SUMMER PROGRAMS FOR UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH (SPUR)

The UCLA Summer Programs for Undergraduate Research (SPUR) is a consortium of several independent summer research programs at UCLA that 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. There are multiple summer programs that participate in SPUR.

Programs interested in being added to SPUR must contact Breana Musella, SPUR Program Coordinator, at bmusella@college.ucla.edu. All requests will be evaluated but participation is not guaranteed.
