Research Opportunities

Menu

Students are encouraged to seek out opportunities to do summer research either with a Wheaton faculty member or with another institution. Wheaton College supports students doing summer research with a faculty member by providing housing and a stipend for 10 weeks of full time research. Students interested in this program should talk with a faculty member about potential opportunities and will need to apply to the Dean of Natural and Social Sciences. The deadline for applications is January 25, 2014.

A host of external Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) programs are available with deadlines ranging from late fall to early spring. Below are links to a few of these programs but students are encouraged to search more broadly for institutions and topic areas that interest them.

The Office of Science /Office of Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists (WDTS)
The Office of Science /Office of Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists (WDTS), is pleased to announce that it is accepting applications to its 2014 Spring Term Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internship (SULI) program, with all required application materials, including recommendations, due by 5:00 PM ET on October 1, 2013. The SULI program encourages undergraduate students to pursue science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers by providing research experiences at Department of Energy (DOE) laboratories, where selected students participate as interns appointed at participating host labs. They perform research, under the guidance of laboratory staff scientists or engineers, on projects supporting the DOE mission.
