Seeing is Believing–Student Researcher Pictures it Fully Formed

Find out what student Lance Kifer can do with weather balloons as part of his summer research stipend, funded through the McNair Scholars Program.

The McNair Scholars Program includes a 10 week-long summer research program. McNair Scholars conduct original research in collaboration with a faculty mentor, and have opportunities to publish and present their work at a professional conference. For this work, Scholars receive both a research and room and board stipend and acquire the research tools needed for graduate study.

The office of Undergraduate Research and Graduate Opportunity (URGO) provides summer research grants for students interested in graduate or professional study.
