Summer Research and Experiential Support Program
Students interested in summer internships or conducting research with a faculty member for academic credit may apply for a tuition waiver. Typically, the internship or research should be an experience that can only be completed in the summer.
This program allows up to ten full-time students in Arts and Science programs to engage in an intensive summer research or experiential opportunity under the supervision of a faculty member. Students with a G.P.A. of 3.0 or above and who planning to attend Fisher on a full-time basis the following year as sophomores, juniors or seniors year are eligible to apply for this summer support.
Two types of student support are available. Students interested in working with an Arts and Sciences faculty member on a scholarly research project should apply for SUMMER RESEARCH SUPPORT while those seeking support for other types of summer experiential academic work (typically internships) should apply for the SUMMER EXPERIENTIAL SUPPORT. Students considering submitting an application should consult with the faculty member with which they would like to work to:
- discuss the nature and feasibility of the project;
- determine the time commitments, duties, and tasks for the summer project;
- clarify student and faculty expectations;
- secure the commitment of the faculty member to participate in the project.
