Psi Chi Summer Research Grants
What is it?

Fourteen undergraduate grants of $5,000 for Psi Chi members to conduct summer research under the supervision of a faculty member who is also a member of Psi Chi. Each grant is divided into

  • a $3,500 stipend for the student
  • a $1,500 stipend for the sponsoring faculty

How does it work?

  1. You outline a summer research project.
  2. Identify a sponsor who is a faculty member at the institution where you will be conducting the research.
  3. Apply for the grant and conduct your research.

Who should apply?

  • Undergraduate Psi Chi members who would like to complete a summer research project.
  • Students who have identified a sponsor to oversee the project and mentor them during their research.
  • Students who will be undergraduates the semester following the summer during which the funded project is completed.

"Using the grant, I was able to complete an fMRI study in which I reconstructed perceived face images from their evoked brain activity. That is, I was able to use brain data from participants who were viewing faces to draw approximate replicas of the faces they were viewing. Though I am still working on publishing this study, it has already proven critical to my professional development. In the fall, I was offered a graduate fellowship at UC Berkeley.
