The Chemistry Research Immersion Summer Program (CRISP) is one of the largest undergraduate research programs in chemistry in the nation. An average of about 40 students each summer have participated in CRISP over the past several years.

Starting your freshman year, you can work during the summer months on a research project with our faculty. Some CRISP participants may receive financial assistance (stipend) through faculty research grants. Those students not offered a stipend will be eligible to receive academic credit for their research experience. Getting credit for your reseach means that your research experience will appear on your transcript. This makes it easy for potential employers and graduate/professional school admissions committees to learn about your experience.

CRISP students do research, attend research group meetings, and have the opportunity to present their findings at weekly research meetings. All of the students in the program also present a poster describing their research at the CRISP poster session at the end of the summer session.
