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:
Why should you consider becoming a member of a lab?
Read about the participating labs by clicking on the 'Participating Labs' tab above. To apply to become a member of an ENERGIZE lab, click on the 'Apply to ENERGIZE' tab and fill out the form.
These are the laboratories currently participating in the ENERGIZE program. Each lab has agreed to hold open at least one position for an ENERGIZE student (but that position might already be filled). In addition, the lab has agreed to be flexible in considering student preparation (e.g., GPA, courses taken), hours that a student might commit to the lab, and the times during the day and week that a student is available to work in the lab. Finally, the lab director is committed to some direct contact and mentoring (e.g., in research and the graduate school application process). This mentoring commitment may require that you attend high-level lab meetings.
You can find out more about each lab by clicking on the links to go to the lab websites.
After you have chosen one or more labs, fill out the form on the “Apply” tab. ENERGIZE program staff will try to arrange for you to meet with a student in the lab for an interview, and you may also be interviewed by the lab director. Be sure to prepare for this interview by reading scientific papers produced by the lab (you can find these papers at the lab websites). Be ready to talk about the papers, why you are interested in the lab, what you can contribute, and when you are available.
