Research & Internships

Research Opportunities at UMW  Many of our majors pursue research during their time at UMW, either through undergraduate apprenticeships, independent study, or the Summer Science Institute.  The University provides generous support for student research through competitive undergraduate research grants, and faculty have supported research through external funding.  Every year, UMW chemistry students present their work at local, regional, and national conferences, and where appropriate collaborate as co-authors on peer-reviewed publications.  Students interested in pursuing research should speak to individual faculty members to get information about the many projects they could be involved with.

Internship Opportunities  Internships are available through external organizations, such as private industry, hospitals, government agencies and more.  Click here to learn more about internships at UMW.
