Summer research programs at UW

A number of summer research programs are hosted at the University of Washington each summer. These programs differ from other on-campus research opportunities in that they usually require a formal application process (often during Winter Quarter); may be open to non-UW students; have a fixed term during the summer (often 9-10 weeks); and are full-time or close-to-full-time commitments (30-40 hours/week).
