Rollins is fortunate to have a competitive Student-Faculty Collaborative Scholarship Program (SFCSP) that runs each summer. Applications to the SFCSP are made through an individual research proposal that each student and her/his faculty mentor develop as an independent study project in the spring semester. Check out the faculty page for information on each professor's area of expertise and contact a person with whom you may want to work.
Unique opportunities abound for students interested in preparing for graduate school with off-campus research. Paid and unpaid fellowships and internships are available in the U.S. and around the world.
