Summer Sanger Research Program

Sanger Summer Research Program
Summer 2018

The Sanger Summer Research Program focuses on collaboration between faculty and students on a sustained research project, with particular focus on moving that research toward public presentation and/or publication.


Faculty and advanced students (rising juniors and seniors). Graduated students are not eligible for the program.  (This includes students returning for an Honors Term.)

Program Dates

May 28 through July 20, 2018.


  1. Student and faculty partners will develop a collaborative model in which the faculty member and student each plays a significant role in the advancement of an ongoing or new research project and in the dissemination of the new knowledge the project produces.
  2. We expect the program to be a full-time commitment for students.  Therefore, students may not hold any on campus job in addition to being a Sanger Scholar.
  3. Participating students and faculty members will be on campus for the full eight weeks of the program.
  4. Faculty/Student teams will prepare for and attend weekly meetings with a research cluster that includes 1-3 other teams, as well as other meetings associated with the Sanger program, as scheduled.
  5. Students are required to present their work at the end of the program, to submit a polished draft of the research completed, and to participate in Spring Symposium. They receive a unit of academic credit for the successful completion of the project.
  6. Students and faculty will actively participate in the evaluation of the program and their participation in it.


  1. Summer tuition, room, and board (lunch and dinner) for participating students
  2. $2700 stipend for participating students
  3. $3500 stipend for participating faculty
  4. $650 in research funds for each team project (to be spent and reimbursed by 9/1/18)
  5. Support for presentation and publication

Students may receive up to $500 for travel to a regional or national conference for presentation of work related to their Sanger project or $500 in bookstore credit for acceptance of their work in a peer-reviewed publication within one year of completing the Sanger program.

Faculty are eligible for an additional $250 in professional development funding for presentation at a regional or national conference of work completed through collaboration with a 2015 Sanger student or $1000 in professional development funding for the acceptance of work completed through collaboration with a 2017 Sanger student by a peer-reviewed journal within two years of completing the summer program.
