Student Summer Research Program
About the Program
The Department of Political Science Student Summer Research Program offers an opportunity for students to participate in an intellectual community committed to inquiry, investigation, and creativity. The integrative summer research program engages teacher-scholars with student-scholars.
- Involve rising sophomores or juniors to formulate and complete mentored research projects related to a research program theme selected by the Department of Political Science, mentored by a faculty team during the summer.
Together, the program participants (students and faculty) form a research community for inquiry supported by both faculty mentoring and peer mentoring. Participants are selected through a competitive process involving an application and review by a department faculty committee. Students selected receive a $1250 stipend for the summer, paid in three installments based on project progress and completion.
