Scientific research is fun and exciting, but requires hard work and determination. Are you interested in this challenge?

To learn more about the School of Science Summer Research Program, please attend the information meeting in February. Make sure to read through all the information on this website, including the current Rules, paying special attention to all the deadlines listed in the timeline. Next, decide whether you wish to develop your own research plan, or work with a particular professor on his/her research. If you need help or advice in choosing a professor, feel free to check with the dean or any professor you know in the School.

The application consists of a Student Interest Form, followed by a full Application Form, Budget Request Form, and the Research Proposal. You need to discuss your proposal with your mentor, so start early!

We look forward to working with you to advance the frontiers of science.
