Take advantage of the many summer study opportunities that exist for Biology majors:
- Research at Villanova with one of our faculty members
- We encourage rising Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors to apply for Villanova Undergraduate Research Grants to support research with university faculty members. These awards include a stipend, money for research expenses, and funds for attending a conference to present results. (Next deadline: 11 Mar 2014.) Biology majors have had great success in obtaining these awards in recent years.
- Opportunities also exist for involvement in research at Villanova—including both laboratory and field activities—that is not necessarily be associated with the grant program described above.
Summer Research Programs at Other Institutions
To help students identify and secure summer research positions—including NSF-funded Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU programs)—we maintain a listing of program advertisements that have come to the attention of members of the department. You can review these listings by opening the link above. We update the content of the PDF file on a regular basis, so check back often.
