Undergraduate Research in Science & Math at Carleton
Research is an integral part of the undergraduate experience at Carleton College. Students have the opportunity conduct research both during the academic year and during the summer. Each summer Carleton approximately 70 undergraduates work with Carleton science and math faculty on authentic research projects. Faculty in Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Geology, Physics & Astronomy, Psychology, and Mathematics mentor students researchers.
The students are supported by a variety of sources
including Carleton's HHMI grant, the Towsley endowment, the Clare Boothe Luce research fellows program, department endowed funds and individual faculty grants.
