ENERGIZE Psychology Research Initiative

What is the ENERGIZE Psychology Research Initiative?

The ENERGIZE Psychology Research Initiative helps connect students with meaningful research lab experience during their undergraduate career.  We hope to ENERGIZE your interest in scientific psychology.  Also, participating Psychology labs are committed to ENERGIZING their research by recruiting lab members who will bring new experiences, backgrounds, and ideas to the research programs.  The labs are specifically looking for students who are under-represented in the sciences. This includes:

  • Racial and ethnic background
  • Sexual orientation
  • Religious diversity
  • First-generation students
  • International students
  • Students with disabilities
  • Nontraditional students
  • Rural students
  • Older students
  • Students with families

Why should you consider becoming a member of a lab?

  • It is the best way to learn deeply about psychology
  • You contribute to creating new science
  • Earn credit in PSY 399 or 499
  • Experience in labs leads to honors projects and strong letters of recommendation for graduate school or employment
  • It’s fun!
