Student/Faculty Summer Research Colloboration

The Student/Faculty Summer Research Collaboration program is funded by the W.M. Keck Foundation along with gifts from alumni, friends, corporations and other foundations.

The Student-Faculty Summer Research Collaboration Program enables teams of Macalester faculty and students to engage in significant projects over a four to ten week period during the summer.

Projects must be related to the faculty member’s curricular, pedagogical, scholarly, or creative interests and should be planned and executed by the student and faculty member working together.

The projects should be designed to permit completion of a substantial portion of the work during the summer and result in a creative product by the student (a musical score or work of art exhibited for public, critical review; an honors project or co-authored poster or paper for publication or presentation at a professional meeting; a curriculum module or technology application to be implemented by the faculty; etc.) to be completed by the end of the subsequent academic year.
