Collaborative student-faculty research is integrated within the Earlham academic curriculum but for students who are interested in a more immersive experience, Earlham offers paid summer collaborative research experiences. Such projects permit students to pursue cutting-edge scholarship under the mentorship of subject area experts, review current literature in the field and present results at conferences including, Earlham's EPIC Expo as well as regional and national professional events.
Summer Collaborative Research (SCR) exposes students to authentic research and prepares them for their next steps after college, whether they choose to pursue graduate school or employment.
SCR helps students understand the process of scholarship while learning discipline specific techniques and academic skills.
Participants also build confidence and perseverance through engagement in student-faculty collaborative projects.
Earlham has offered collaborative research experiences during the summer since 1988. More than 375 students participated in projects between 2008-2020.
