The UC UPRISE REU program provides 12-week summer research opportunities for undergraduate students in the science and engineering fields. Students admitted to the program will be actively engaged in a research project with a UC faculty member, where they will participate in the collection and analyses of data. At the end of the program students will present their results to the university community in a formal oral presentation and submit a technical paper. UPRISE students also attend weekly professionalization workshops on topics related to graduate/medical school, pursuing careers in STEM fields, and how to present research results in various formats. UPRISE students are also eligible for funding support to present the results of their research at academic conferences.
