In a typical summer, approximately one to two dozen students seek out off-campus research opportunities. They do so either because they are interested in a field in which Furman faculty mentors do not offer expertise, or because they want to broaden their horizons by being away from campus. In either case, we identify those students as “Research Interns,” because it is their responsibility to establish the relationship with the off-campus mentor and/or institution. If the research experience is unfunded, then the student can apply for support from Furman, however the application is done through the Internship Office, rather the Office of Undergraduate Research. The deadline for applications is March 31, 2023.
We have gathered a list of research resources and off-campus opportunities for student reference organized by field.
