Now in its eighth year, the PRIDE (Psychology Research Initiative for Diversity Enhancement) program brings together Syracuse University undergraduates from underrepresented minority groups and invites them to develop an original independent psychology summer research project over the course of seven weeks. At the conclusion of the program, participants presented their work to fellow students and psychology faculty during the annual PRIDE symposium this past June.
In addition to the 15 to 20 hours of mentorship each week, students are also offered a chance to participate in several sessions of professional development, designed to help each of them build the skills needed to apply and succeed in graduate school.
