Off-Campus Research Opportunities

Although we’d argue that on-campus Summer Research Program is a top-tier program (Allegheny College’s research program won a national award after all!), there are many opportunities for you to conduct research outside of Allegheny College.

Off-Campus Summer Research

Students interested in conducting research off-campus will need to do some searching for research opportunities at other colleges and universities. The deadline for these summer research internships generally range from February 1st to early April. Therefore, you need to do some searching over the winter break. Before searching on the web, talk to Allegheny faculty or students who have participated in off-campus summer internships. On the web, look for summer internship databases that will focus your search to specific disciplines. The URSCA office provides links to some of these summer internship databases under the tab “Funding and Other Resources”

Summer Research Databases

The databases below include summer research internships within specific disciplines or summer internships for students from many different disciplines.  Some of the lists also include specific internship opportunities for minority students, including female students who are underrepresented in their discipline.
