Leighty Science Scholars

As a part of the Leighty Science Scholars program, all Leighty Scholars will do research during the summer after their sophomore year in collaboration with a Millikin science faculty.  Each Leighty Scholar will receive a $3,000 summer stipend for the summer.  Contact Millikin Admissions or the Biology Department for details of this program.

Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURF)

The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Program is for students who are interested in spending the summer researching, acquiring data, and engaging in Millikin Performance Learning. Faculty members select a research student with which to partner, and develop a proposal which is reviewed by the SURF committee. Successful faculty-student research partners receive a $3,000 stipend plus supply money for their summer project.

Off-Campus Research 

Graduate universities, medical schools, and other research centers also offer summer research. Millikin students can register for credit when they do off-campus research.
