Levitt Summer Research Fellowship

The Levitt Research Fellows Program is open to Hamilton students who wish to spend the summer researching a public–affairs question of their own choosing. Collaborating closely with a faculty advisor, fellows work full time for 10 weeks, submit a 25–page paper and prepare and present a poster during Parents’ Weekend.

Levitt Center Group Research

Levitt Research Group Grants

Levitt Research Group Grants support groups of students that complete summer research projects under the supervision of at least one faculty advisor. 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 also are encouraged.

Kirkland Summer Associates

The Kirkland Summer Associates program supports students who wish to do research or creative work that fits under the mandate of the endowment, "to support the needs and interests of women at Hamilton." The program is open to all students, but preference will be given to rising juniors and seniors.

NERCOMP

NY6 Summer Research Fellowship

The Upstate-Global Collective is an initiative of the New York Six Liberal Arts Consortium, which aims to create scholarly communities across our member schools.
