The Kenyon Summer Science Scholars Cascade program provides opportunities for first and second year students with no previous research experience. Selected scholars will work in close collaboration with faculty-student research teams in the natural sciences. Over 8-10 weeks, Cascade Scholars will gain experience conducting and communicating scientific research. As part of the Kenyon Summer Scholars community, they will join faculty and students from across campus for discussions, social events, and peer mentorship. Twelve Cascade Scholars will be funded by a grant from the Sherman Fairchild Foundation, which limits support to projects in biology, chemistry, neuroscience, and physics. Limited additional support from Kenyon College are available for projects in anthropology, mathematics/statistics, and psychology. Selections for these competitive awards are made by a committee of faculty members from all participating disciplines, with final approval by the project mentor.
