Levitt Student-Faculty Research Teams

Levitt Research Group Grants support groups of students completing summer research projects under the supervision of at least one faculty adviser. The grants are intended to encourage faculty and student publications. Fieldwork or original analysis of existing data is generally required, with preference given to teams doing research in the local community. Projects that will be useful for policy makers and other researchers are also encouraged. Students in research groups and their faculty advisers meet face-to-face regularly to coordinate and communicate research efforts, as well as participate in a weekly gathering with other research groups. Each student works on a full-time basis for at least 10 weeks, submits a 25-page paper, and prepares and presents a poster during Parents' Weekend in the fall.
