In Summer… Here are Some Research Opportunities


In the midst of winter as the cold seeps into our homes, we often tend to think of what we will be doing in the summer…


For students interested in summer research opportunities (including paid experiences), winter is also a good time to start thinking about applying to these opportunities, as many summer research opportunities have a deadline in January or February. One notable exception to this is Roanoke College’s Summer Scholars program which has a deadline of March 15th.
