Harvard College Program for Research in Science and Engineering (PRISE)

    The Harvard College Program for Research in Science and Engineering (PRISE) is a 10-week program for Harvard College undergraduate students participating in a research activity during the summer months in the natural, physical, engineering, or applied sciences. The research activity can be sponsored by a Harvard Faculty member in a relevant academic department or research center in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, as well as program directors and principal investigators in the Harvard Medical School, the School of Public Health, affiliated local research institutes and hospitals, and other academic and administrative units throughout the University.

    Summer 2010 will be the fifth year for the prestigious program, which was created to establish a stimulating, collegial, and diverse residential community for Harvard undergraduates engaged in summer research.
