UC Davis Summer Poverty Research Engagement Experience (UCD-SPREE)

The Center for Poverty Research (CPR) at UC Davis in collaboration with Howard University, Morehouse College and Spelman College, hosts the UCD-SPREE program which introduces undergraduates from these Universities to poverty research in the social sciences and develop skills for graduate school.

UCD-SPREE participants travel to UC Davis during their first summer in the program, where they are paired with faculty and graduate student mentors and introduced to research at the CPR. Students participate in CPR activities and coordinating graduate school preparation components sponsored by the Office of Graduate Studies.
