Student Summer Research Program

The Summer Student Research Program offers students an opportunity to participate in an intellectual community committed to inquiry, investigation and creativity. The integrative summer research program engages teacher-scholars with student-scholars and consists of two main components:

Theme projects
Rising sophomores or juniors formulate and complete mentored research projects related to a research program theme selected by the department and mentored by a faculty team during the summer.

Thesis projects
Seniors work on their political science-related distinction and/or honors theses. Mentoring for these projects involves their thesis supervisor.

Participants are selected through a competitive process involving an application and review by a department faculty committee. Selected students receive a $1500 stipend for the summer.
