    Collaborative Research: Summer Opportunities

    Students in their sophomore year and beyond have an opportunity to pursue specific, well-articulated, innovative research in close collaboration with faculty members. Over the span of ten summer weeks, 24 selected students have an opportunity to:

    • spend 35-40 hours per week researching and investigating an original project defined in collaboration with a faculty member in their field; 
    • together with fellow summer scholars, attend weekly seminars which foster an intellectual community and provide an opportunity to share work in progress; 
    • receive a generous stipend as an alternative to summer employment, so that scholars can focus fully on their research; 
    • live, free of charge, on campus, if such arrangements prove convenient to their summer scholarly pursuits; 
    • receive up to 6 credits toward graduation requirements; 
    • learn about further research, scholarship, fellowship, and grant opportunities.

    2014 Summer Collaborative Research Application Process

    The deadline for submission for summer collaborative research will be Friday, March 7th, 2014. All materials, including faculty letters of support, should be sent electronically to Paula Mullineaux (scur@hamline.edu) no later than 5pm. An interdisciplinary committee of faculty will convene to select grant recipients by early April.

    It is expected that all application materials will be well-articulated, well-written, and edited. To that end, all candidates are advised to work closely with their faculty colleagues throughout the process of outlining, creating, and repeatedly revising the application. In addition, both program directors can provide feedback on application drafts up to a week prior to the submission deadline.
