Summer Scholars Program

Summer Scholars Program actively engages undergraduates in STEM research. Working closely with faculty mentors, students gain hands-on experience in highly interdisciplinary projects and learn to apply new instrumental techniques and analytical methods. The Summer Scholars Program is supported by a generous gift from ViaSat, Inc.


The 10-week program engages scholars in a variety of research projects. In addition to developing students’ research skills, this program also involves students in the culture of research. By connecting students’ research experiences to their overall course of study, the Summer Scholars Program is helping to develop the future STEM workforce needed in our region.
