Summer Research at UC Santa Barbara! 

Applications are open for the summer research programs hosted by the Center for Science and Engineering Partnerships (CSEP)! The common goal of our programs is to offer students, who are underrepresented in STEM, a unique opportunity to become immersed in the scientific community and develop as leaders in the broader UCSB community. Most of our summer programs do not require any research experience. We encourage all who are interested to apply. Find program eligibility on the programs' websites.

Did we mention you get PAID to do research? Our programs offer a variety and benefits for scholars - the baseline is that all of the CSEP summer research program participants receive a stipend for their summer research experience.

To learn more, you may find program-specific flyers and hyperlinks below. Questions for any of the programs? Contact Research Programs Coordinator Sofi via email today! Our research programs share one common application that may be found on the programs' websites. Applicants may apply to one or more of the programs through the common application.

Submit your application before the deadline on February 11, 2024.
