|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! 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.
