Levitt Student-Faculty Research Teams
Levitt Research Group Grants support groups of two to three Hamilton students completing summer research projects under the supervision of one faculty adviser. The research projects completed by each individual student in the group last for 8 to 10 weeks and help to answer an overarching research question. Students in research groups and their faculty advisers meet face-to-face regularly to coordinate and communicate research efforts. The grants are intended to encourage faculty publication as well as faculty-student publications. Projects that have output that will be useful for policy makers or other researchers are also encouraged. Levitt Research Group Grants conduct research related to at least one of the Levitt Center’s theme-based programs: Inequality and Equity, Security, or Sustainability. Field work or original analysis of existing data is required.
