Summer Research

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!  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.

In addition, many research institutions have summer programs for undergraduates. For more information:

Also, many companies offer summer internships. For more information, see the Career Center's Scientific Summer Research and Internships information or the Career.
