The School of Science Research Scholars program is an opportunity for students to get involved in research projects with faculty during the summer, and in some cases during the academic year. Each year, about thirty (30) select students are awarded, through different sources, a stipend and, if eligible, summer housing.
At the end of the summer all students present their work in a college-wide seminar and poster presentation. In addition, students are required to submit a report on the type of research, methods used and results. These reports are published in The Manhattan Scientist a student-edited research journal. Students are also encouraged to submit their projects to a variety of regional and national academic conferences, and those who are invited to present are often provided travel funds by the School of Science.
Students who would like to collaborate on a research project with a faculty member must submit an application. They must have already identified a faculty mentor and, with their faculty, a research project in order to apply. You will need to fill out an application and a research proposal.
