Campus-Based Summer Positions

Many opportunities for research and creative endeavors are available on the CWRU campus  every summer for both CWRU and non-CWRU students. Students take the opportunity to carry out independent projects full-time under the supervision of a faculty mentor, often in  conjunction with their senior capstone projects. In addition, professors often recruit students to participate in their research projects. Below is a list of summer programs and opportunities on campus and in its immediate vicinity. Make special note of the application deadlines, many of which are early in the spring semester (between mid-January and mid-March).

SOURCE will update program deadlines as we learn about them.
