Washington and Lee Summer Research Scholars Program

W&L students and faculty have opportunities for joint research work during the summer months. The Summer Research Scholars (SRS) program has evolved over the decades into a robust series of opportunities and projects. The program aims to encourage the development of research techniques within a particular discipline, to promote the active acquisition of knowledge, and to stimulate student interest in inquiry. It is also intended to aid undergraduate faculty in their research activities by providing student help, but the projects must be meaningful in their own right as well as educationally valuable for the student. The application process is competitive, and funds may not be adequate to grant all proposals. The supported work is carried out during the summer months.
