The Behavioral Laboratory In the Social Sciences (BLISS) is a summer residential program designed to stimulate community and creativity among a diverse cohort of undergraduate researchers. During the ten-week program a dozen or so Harvard students work full time on faculty-led social science research projects on campus or in the neighboring communities. Modeled after the popular and successful Harvard College Program for Research in Science and Engineering (PRISE), BLISS provides housing and partial board, a stipend for expenses, and coverage of summer savings obligations for financial aid recipients, as well as academic and professional development programming for the student Fellows (including lectures and discussions with distinguished faculty and professionals in a wide variety of fields, practical seminars, and tours of research centers and labs around campus), and a host of social activities.
