Summer Scholar Program
The Summer Scholar Program at Roanoke College enables qualified students to conduct independent research for eight to twelve weeks during the summer. Students receive tuition, on-campus housing, and a stipend of $2500. Application procedures and deadlines are published every spring and are available from your Psychology advisor. Psychology majors have participated in the Summer Scholar Program almost every year since its beginning in 1994!
