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. Visit the SPUR website for more information.

Programs interested in being added to the those included in SPUR (or those on hiatus and seeking to resume participation) must reach out to Breana Musella, SPUR Program Representative, at bmusella@college.ucla.edu by March 31, 2020. We do our best to accommodate all requests, but cannot guarantee participation.
