In addition to research during the academic year, Harvey Mudd College offers its students high-quality summer research opportunities. Students from all departments have authored and co-authored papers presented at regional, national and international conferences, and are co-authors with faculty mentors of papers published in peer-reviewed journals.
The record of HMC faculty obtaining competitive external funding is also excellent, confirming our success in integrating undergraduate research and education. Indeed, in recognition of that success, HMC was one of only 10 primarily undergraduate institutions nationwide to receive the National Science Foundation's Award for the Integration of Research and Education in 1998.
Faculty research is currently supported by grants from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Institute of Health, as well as active research grants from other organizations. Moreover, we are pleased to have NSF-REU (Research Experiences for Undergraduates) sites in chemistry and computer science. Christine Alvarado, a faculty member in computer science, also currently has a CAREER award, which recognizes the efforts of teacher-scholars who most effectively integrate research and teaching.
Though HMC’s Summer Research Program is largely supported by such external grants, there are numerous opportunities for companies or their foundations to provide grant funding to improve and expand summer research at the college http://www.hmc.edu/academicsclinicresearch/research/sumres1/2007.htm
