"Researching is something I won't forget," wrote one student in an independent survey."I actually want to pursue a Ph.D. /M.D. now because of this. I'm really excited to move on! I learned so much and gained a lot of skills that will be useful to me for my academic career."
Summer Research Expands Learning Opportunities
Summer research offers Benedictine students the opportunity to expand their knowledge, hone laboratory skills and gain hands-on experience by working closely with faculty on a variety of scientific research projects. "My love for math was rediscovered," a student said in an independent survey. " I had the greatest time during my experiences and can't wait to continue my work. The University's willingness to help further projects and support such research has been remarkable and amazing - and I am certainly very grateful. "
Through the program students work one-on-one with College of Science faculty on scientific research projects. This 10-week experience includes a $3,300 stipend and a weekly lunch seminar where students have the occasion to present their research findings to a supportive audience of faculty and peers. Later, students present their findings at local and regional conferences, with some even attending national conferences.
