IPR Summer Undergraduate Research Program

What does it mean to be a researcher? While classes and coursework might peak interest in graduate school or a future career in policy, students are often removed from day-to-day research activities, such as designing and implementing a study. And so the Summer Undergraduate Research Assistants Program at the Institute for Policy Research, now in its 13th year, brings students in to work directly with cutting-edge researchers on their projects.
