The University of Iowa hosts a variety of summer research experiences that bring undergraduates from other institutions to campus to enhance their understanding of research in a variety of disciplines. Acceptance into these programs is based on a competitive application system.
Participants develop research skills under the mentorship of University of Iowa faculty members. They also become part of a research community with access to programming, workshops, and professional development. These programs highlight career opportunities and provide guidance on applying to graduate and professional schools.
Programs last 8-10 weeks and include a competitive stipend. Housing, food, and travel expenses are commonly covered by the programs. Applicants should refer to individual programs for additional information on timelines, research areas, and compensation.
