You may also apply for paid academic-year positions in research labs, in some cases as early as your first year! Each faculty member may obtain financial support for student wages from various sources, including the Colgate Research Council. These opportunities frequently stem from curricular research.
There are also opportunities for paid summer research positions. Each summer, about 80 science students remain on campus to conduct research. Summer research stipends are available from both internal and external sources. Awards are frequently based on the quality of a grant proposal written by a student in conjunction with a faculty sponsor. Individual faculty grants may also support summer research.
