Summer Research Information


Housing

All housing arrangements are made through Residential Life.  Students are responsible for payment of their housing arrangements.  Please note that on-campus housing is typically not available after mid-August.

 

Information about Summer Research Checks

Before you start your summer research project, go to Human Resources (17 South Lane) and fill out the necessary paperwork so that you can be paid.  Also, check that your mailbox has been left open so that your check will be delivered.  The default is to close it at the end of the year, so you need to speak to the mailroom to have it kept open.

Paychecks for summer research students are generally issued in batches:

8-Week Fellowships:
$760 each on four pay dates (late June, early July, late July, early August).
The final check of $760 will be issued once your final report has been submitted to the Undergraduate Research office and we have received your summer research evaluation survey results.
The final deadline for reports will be in mid-September.

6-Week Fellowships:
$570 each on four pay dates (late June, early July, late July, early August).
The final check of $570 will be issued once your final report has been submitted to the Undergraduate Research office and we have received your summer research evaluation survey results.
The final deadline for reports will be in mid-September.

4-Week Fellowships:
$633.33 each on two pay dates (late June and early July; or late July and early August for students starting later in the summer).
The final check of $633.33 will be issued once your final report has been submitted to the Undergraduate Research office and we have received your summer research evaluation survey results.
The final deadline for reports will be in mid-September.

 

2017 Summer Research Seminar Series

The Summer Research Seminar Series will meet twice weekly starting in early July, on Tuesdays and Thursdays with lunch provided for students and faculty who are attending the talks. 2-3 students will give brief (~15-minute) presentations about their research each session; time slots will be available for sign-up following an organizational meeting at the start of the summer.

We will also have a poster session in early August for students who can’t fit into the oral presentation schedule.

 

 

How do I receive my Final Summer Research Check?

 

1. Work with your summer research faculty advisor to write a report that summarizes your summer work.  This report may take any form that is acceptable to your faculty research advisor.  After consulting with your advisor, complete the Summer Research Final Report Submission Form (you will be uploading your pdf only file through this link).

2. Ruth Cotter will forward your report to your faculty research advisor.  Your advisor will reply to this message indicating his/her official approval of the final report.

3. Fill out the Evaluation of Summer Research Survey.

When we have received completed versions of all of the above, your final check will be issued by the Payroll office.* Students who do not complete the requirements by the deadline will forfeit their final check.  “Research Fellow” will be added to your transcript if you complete all requirements of your summer fellowship.  The Undergraduate Research Program will work directly with the Registrar’s Office; no additional action is required on your part.

*Checks are issued once every two weeks.  Depending on when you submit your report, it could be up to 3 weeks before you receive your check.
