Through the Summer Research Institute (SRI), teams of faculty and students may apply for competitive summer research grants from the College. Students work with Hood faculty on a research project and receive a stipend and free lodging for the period.
In addition to learning how to do the research, students learn about data analysis and how to present their findings, typically by presenting a poster at a local or regional conference. All of these skills are very useful when applying for graduate programs. Applications for the SRI are due each year in February.
