Undergraduate research at Brockport gives students an opportunity to work closely with a faculty mentor on scholarly or creative projects directly related to a student’s major. These projects take on many different forms, and many lead to a professional product that enhances your resume. Projects range from part-time work during the regular academic year to full-time summer research internships.
Brockport Foundation Summer Undergraduate Research
Through the generosity of the Brockport Foundation, the College sponsors students to work with faculty mentors on the mentor's research for up to eight weeks during the summer. Students present the results of their work at Scholars Day, conferences outside the College, and IEL sponsored events. This competitive program is open to all Brockport undergraduate students who will be returning the following academic year. Selected students receive a stipend and free housing in residence halls. The application and rubric are available online. Applications are due February 20 (or April 24 if applying for housing only).
Started in 1984, Scholars Day has provided the opportunity for the Brockport community to learn and engage in other student's scholarly work. This interdisciplinary scholarly event allows students to present their work through oral presentations, poster presentations, and artistic performance. In 2011, the College launched The Spectrum, a faculty-reviewed journal of Scholars Day works. Details about Scholars Day can be found here.
