Research Opportunities


Lab desk covered in research tools

SKMC offers students a number of research opportunities, including summer research programs. Our Faculty Interest Database can be a helpful tool for determining which faculty members are working on projects that interest you. Indianna University has a great resource page of various opportunities that they regularly update. You may also be interested in national research opportunities (PDF).

Many students take time during summer break to explore research opportunities, though this is not required. Brooke Scheidemantle (Class of '17) compiled results from 55 upper-class students (PDF) to help first-year students determine the best way to spend their first summer in the program. Part 2 (PDF) of this compilation is continued.
