This research program, supported by Manhattan College, is managed through the Center for Graduate School and Fellowship Advisement. Students are chosen based on an evaluation of their proposed research or creative project, their academic and cocurricular achievements, and promise for future contributions to knowledge and research in their discipline.

As part of this program, the Center for Graduate School and Fellowship Advisement provides enhanced programs, advising and support so that students develop intellectual, interpersonal, and research skills to be competitive applicants to graduate school, professional school, and fellowships.

Students live on campus, as one of the goals of the Summer Research initiative has been to foster a climate of scholarly engagement during the summer months. These students work intensively on research projects under the direction of Manhattan College faculty.

On Thursday, Sept. 27, Priya Ramanathan, Ph.D., program director at the Bronx and Brooklyn locations of Per Scholas, will give the keynote address to the group of students and faculty at 4:30 p.m., followed by a poster session and reception at 5:30 p.m.

On Friday, Sept. 28, students will begin their 10-minute presentations at 9 a.m. After a lunch break at 1 p.m., presentations will continue at 2 p.m. and finish at approximately 3:45 p.m.
