The summer of 2018 will be the 51st year that Smith has had a formal student summer research program! Hands-on research collaboration between faculty and students is a cornerstone of the science education at Smith, so the summer program has always been very important to us. We invite you to join the students who will receive stipends to support their independent research during the summer of 2018.
