"This research gave me the opportunity to really contribute to the field, and feel like I can actually make an impact as an undergrad.”
SRF students begin learning and experiencing authentic scientific research in a wide variety of disciplines from their very first year. Our students go on to major in Chemistry, Biochemistry, Physics, Biology, Kinesiology, Computer Science, Geosciences, Mathematics, or Psychology and Neuroscience. They collaborate with DePauw faculty in summer-long, on-campus research, and they experience research internships at leading facilities across the globe.
The Science Research Fellows Program is not accepting applications for the Class of 2024. However, we are expanding research opportunities and relevant programming to all DePauw students in collaboration with the Asher Office of Undergraduate Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity.
