WISCIENCE Entering Research Program: Spring-Summer 2019

This program is for students who are new to research and looking to find a mentor, build research skills, and begin a research project. Current undergraduate students at UW–Madison with little to no prior research experience are eligible to apply.

Program description

The Entering Research Program begins in spring 2019. Students enroll in Integrated Science 150: Exploring Research (1 credit). In this course, students build skills to prepare them for research in a STEM field, and they identify a research mentor and project.

In summer 2019, the students work on their research project with their mentor. They enroll in 3 or 4 credits of Integrated Science 299: Independent Research with their mentor and continue cohort-based research skills-building in Integrated Science 260: Entering Research (1 credit). Students who enroll in the summer component of the course will receive a $2,000 award.
