Research Opportunities for Students

Centre students often reach a point where they are ready for challenges beyond traditional classroom discussion and testing. When they are ready, students may undertake intensive research either independently or in collaboration with faculty members either at Centre or at other institutions. In some cases, the College provides research materials, summer housing, and stipends. Outside grants also support collaborative research and study. While the majority of research takes place in the summer, academic-year opportunities are also available. Students may present their results at regional, state, and national meetings; many students have won prizes and other awards for their work. In addition, students are encouraged to present their work at Centre’s annual undergraduate research, internship, and creative endeavors (RICE) symposium.
