Our Summer Research Program enables students to work for ten weeks in close collaboration with a faculty advisor of his/her choice, on a research project developed by the student.
Students spend the summer (typically after their sophomore or junior year) gaining first-hand experience with genuine scientific research. Each participant receives a stipend, housing on campus, and a very rewarding experience!
