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.

Many research institutions have summer programs for undergraduates (Research Experience for Undergraduates) sponsored by the National Science Foundation. For more information, see NSF REU programs.

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