What to Expect

After collaborating with your faculty advisor to craft a presentation and your project is approved, you’ll spend 10 weeks conducting full-time research, and then present your findings in the fall. Students who receive summer research awards are provided a stipend to cover their living expenses and may also apply for additional grant funding for research expenses or travel.
