Summer Opportunities

Undergraduate Research, Scholarship, Creativity, and Dialogue

Visit the Summer Employment website for forms and deadlines for students and faculty collaborating on research.

There are many opportunities for students to engage in Research, Scholarship, Creativity, and Dialogue (RSCD) opportunities in the summer. Student-faculty collaborations involve in-depth, faculty-sponsored inquiry projects in any discipline. Summer projects may take different forms:

  • research assistantship [e.g. working in a faculty member's lab or on a faculty-driven research project]
  • independently-conceived student project with a faculty member as a mentor
  • equal partnership between a faculty member and a student

In summer 2019, Gustavus had 44 students working with 21 faculty members on summer research and creative projects. Disciplines represented include: Biology, Chemistry, Communication Studies, Computer Science, Environmental Studies, Geography, Geology, Health & Exercise Science, Mathematics, Physics, Psychological Science, and Theatre.
