Conducting research is a transformative experience that creates space for students to engage in a high level and independent work with a strong support system, connecting academic learning to career goals. Students who engage in research benefit by expanding their understanding of their field, developing relationships with faculty mentors, and growing their professional skills. Find out more about research opportunities below.
Summer Research awards & grants are designed to provide students special opportunities to engage in scholarly research in virtually all academic fields (e.g., arts, humanities, social sciences, life sciences, health sciences, physical sciences, etc.). Student participants will work with a faculty mentor to assist the faculty member in an ongoing research project or work collaboratively with the mentor in designing a new project of mutual interest.
