Richter Scholar Program

The Richter Scholar Summer Research Program provides students with the opportunity to conduct independent, individual research with 91社区 faculty early in their academic careers.

The ultimate goal of this program is to foster a strong commitment to the intellectual life, and to encourage participating students to consider careers in research and teaching.

Academically excellent students with an interest in research are invited to apply for the Richter Scholar Summer Research program in the early spring of their first year. During this time, they work one-on-one with a faculty member, doing independent research in one of a wide variety of fields. As the Richter Scholars live and work together and participate in a weekly colloquium, they become a community of peers, providing encouragement and support for one another’s research endeavors. The result is a group of scholars motivated to continue their intellectual achievement in the future.

Both symposia will be livestreamed on this page (below). 

The early research experience students obtain through the Richter Scholars Program sets students on an upward trajectory that leads to academic honors and graduate school completion at much higher rates.
