Summer Research Experience
Students participating in the IQ Science course will receive stipend support to conduct research during the following summer. Students will work with a faculty mentor of their choosing on an interdisciplinary research project. Summer housing on campus, funds for research supplies and grants for travel to professional conferences are provided as well. This opportunity is made possible by a $1.4 million grant from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
Though funding is provided and expected for the first summer of research for IQ Science participants, students are encouraged to continue conducting research throughout their undergraduate experience. The School of Arts & Sciences has established a large undergraduate research program where students may apply for funding to assist in defraying the costs of conducting research and disseminating its results to the scholarly community. Additionally, the University has several external funding sources, including the LURE Program and the Beckman Scholars Program.
