Summer research opportunities provide biology students with a wealth of programs to boost knowledge and experience. Wofford students compete successfully for research slots at the Greenwood Genetics Center, the Medical University of South Carolina and other facilities in the state. Students also have conducted research projects with Wofford professors. Grant funding can be sought from the South Carolina Independent Colleges and Universities. Talk with your biology professor about interest in these programs.
Students interested in summer research opportunities can explore Research Experiences for Undergraduates through the NSF.
Most of the REUs pay for travel to and from the university where students would be studying, provide a 10-week stipend and allow interaction with other REU students and research faculty in social and academic settings.
Sophomores and juniors seeking paid research experience during the summer should check the list posted on the NSF webpage.
