About the Program

Collaborative research among faculty and students is a critical element of the academic culture at Mount Holyoke, providing our students with outstanding mentoring and access to sophisticated scientific instrumentation and techniques that few undergraduates experience. With the support of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Mount Holyoke will offer two overlapping summer research programs in 2008-2012.

Students with interest in the following disciplines are all encouraged to apply:

  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Biochemistry
  • Physics
  • Neuroscience and Behavior (Psychology)
  • Mathematic
  • Computer Science
  • Environmental Studies
  • Geology & Geography

Please note that the program is not available in this academic year.
