Winter Workshop & Mentoring Program

Students will attend a series of 13 workshops that will highlight topics such as interesting research fields within psychology, resume/CV writing, applying to graduate school and tips for gaining transferable career skills through research. Additionally, there will be small mentoring groups, connecting undergraduate students with current Psychology PhD students.

The Winter 2021 application is now closed. Please check back next fall for the Winter 2022 application.

Students will be notified about their application status in early December. 30 students from the University of Michigan will be selected to participate and up to 25 non U-M students will be offered a position in the program. 

Who should apply to participate in the workshop and mentoring program?

Students should demonstrate strong academic potential, with an interest in connecting with graduate students and faculty around research and mentorship opportunities. Preference is given to individuals who have little to no research experience and are unsure how to get involved. University of Michigan CSP and transfer students are especially encouraged to apply. The program is aimed to support first-year through junior Psychology & Biopsychology, Cognition & Neuroscience (BCN) majors or intended majors, with a particular focus on students who meet 1 or more of the criteria below:

  • Identify with groups that have been historically underrepresentated in research, including: first-generation students, international and undocumented students, racial and ethnic minorities, and sexual orientation and gender minorities
  • Have demonstrated a sustained commitment to diversity
  • Have experienced financial hardship as a result of family economic circumstances

Why should you apply?

Students who participate will recieve mentoring by a current graduate student, participate in informational panels and skill workshops, have the opprotunity to network with professionals and faculty and will attend scientific talks and discussions.

Our ultimate goal is to prepare you with research skills so you can be a competitive candidate for research positions, graduate school or the industry/private sector job market.

How can you join?

Applicants will submit written responses to a series of short answer questions (areas of interest with Psychology; career/educational goals; and purpose for participating in this program, etc) and submit a C.V. or Resume, which may include information such as: education, work experience, professional and non-professional affiliations, awards and honors, service and volunteer activities, special skills, publications/presentations, hobbies. Note - many qualified applicants may not have information in all of these categories.
