Summer Scholars Program
The Dr. Fred C. Swope Summer Scholars Program is an intensive, eight-week program that introduces selected students to the scientific method, research design and data analysis, data presentation, use of sophisticated laboratory instruments, and independent research.
Each student conducts a research project under the guidance of a faculty mentor. This research is at the "cutting edge" of science, and several publications have resulted from these projects.
Normally, cadets are selected to participate in this program between their 2nd and 1st class years.
