2017 Summer Research Opportunities

 

A great way to apply and extend what you have been learning in the classroom and the laboratory is to join an active research lab over the summer. Amherst College and many institutions across the country (and beyond) offer summer undergraduate research programs that typically last about 10 weeks. Descriptions of some of these programs and the applications can be found at the links provided below.

Summer Research Gatherings and Workshop

If you are staying on campus this summer, Academic Technology, the Library, and the Writing Center provide a number of opportunities to enhance your research skills and meet with other students outside the lab and study carrel. Whether you are a Summer Undergraduate Research Fellow, continuing your research from a spring Mellon Tutorial, working on a faculty project, or getting a head start on your thesis, you’ll find an opportunity of interest.
