Summer Education Research Program (SERP)

The Summer Education Research Program (SERP) is sponsored by the School of Education and the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Graduate School. The program provides underrepresented undergraduate students interested in pursuing graduate studies in the academic fields within the School of Education a valuable opportunity to engage in independent research guided by a faculty mentor.

During the ​ten–week long program, SERP scholars attend a weekly seminar, meet with faculty mentors, and prepare to present their research papers at the end of the program. 

In addition to receiving a stipend, room and board, and travel arrangements, SERP participants also attend cultural events and field trips. Apply to the SERP program here
