Research in the Sciences

There are several funding opportunities for summer research in the sciences:


Science Horizons Off-Campus Research Funding

With support from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Bryn Mawr College will offer 5 Science Horizons Internships for undergraduates interested in careers in science. Preference will be given to rising juniors and seniors who identify research opportunities in computationally intensive areas in biology or biomedical fields. These awards are designed to enable students to undertake mentored research projects in a variety of scientific fields in off-campus environments. Potential internship sites include industry and government labs, research universities, and medical centers. The stipend is $5250.

Eligibility:  Freshman, Sophomores and Juniors

Deadline:  Monday, March 2, 2015

Summer Research in the Sciences

Undergraduate research initiatives are central to Bryn Mawr College's approach to science education. All science majors are encouraged to conduct mentored research projects during the summer and/or academic year, and each year over 50% of all science majors do so. Students receive stipends for summer research and academic credit for research performed in the junior and senior years. Since 1989, each summer the College has provided 35+ students with ten-week research stipends to conduct independent research under the guidance of Bryn Mawr faculty members in the sciences and mathematics. The summer program is enriched by professional development workshops and a poster session at which students present their research to the college community.

Each summer the college provides 35+ undergraduate research stipends. These stipends are restricted to Bryn Mawr students and Haverford students majoring in the sciences at Bryn Mawr, who are doing discovery-based research in the laboratory or field with Bryn Mawr faculty. They are not open to Swarthmore students or Bryn Mawr/Haverford students working at other institutions/organizations or on pedagogical projects.

Summer Research in the Sciences is supported by the Ann Lutes Johnson '58 M.D. Science Research Fund, the Sherman Fairchild Foundation, and the Office of the Undergraduate Dean. 

Deadline:  Monday, March 2, 2015
