Summer Research Program
Each summer, students work together with a faculty research supervisor on research projects in a variety of disciplines. The Summer Research Program (SRP) supports intensive student involvement in faculty supervised research at Trinity during the summer. Students receive a stipend of $400 per week for 8-10 weeks of research work, as well as on-campus housing (COVID-19 regulations permitting). In addition, students are invited to participate in regular programs featuring speakers and panels. At the conclusion of the research period, students are required to submit a summary of their work to the dean of academic affairs. Student researchers are also expected to present the results of their work at the College’s Fall Research Symposium, held every year in September. See important deadlines below, as well as videos to hear from some of the student/faculty research teams who worked on campus during the summer of 2017.
Short applications are prepared by the student in close consultation with the faculty supervisor from February to mid-March, and are considered by the Faculty Research Committee in late-March.
