Summer break research funding opportunity – Student Research at another Institution

9 January 2018

Dear Students in Math and Science,

I’m writing to make you aware of funding that is available to support student research in Math and Sciences during summer break:  

Student Research at Another Institution:

The Kolenkow-Reitz Fund provides student stipend and travel support for Carleton students working with non-Carleton science and math faculty at another institution during summer break.  Awards fund student stipends ($460/week for full time work) for up to 10 weeks during summer break, and can include expenses for travel to the research site.  No award will exceed $5100.  Note that students must work full time in order to qualify.  Carleton students are eligible to apply for this funding. Before applying, students should have already contacted and discussed the nature and timing of their project with the person they are planning to work as well as a faculty member at Carleton who can vouch for the project.  Please note that previously funded students through the Kolenkow-Reitz Fund (winter break or summer) are less likely to be funded, but are still eligible to apply.

Application Deadline: 11:59 PM on Friday, February 2, 2018

More details are available in the application form, which you can find here:
