Undergraduate Research Program

Summer Programs

Summer research programs are full-time immersive research experiences where selected students are matched with a mentor to join their research team and work on a project for a fixed term (often 9-10 weeks).

These programs usually require a formal application process and may be open to students outside of the institution offering the program.
