Each year hundreds of students across all majors take part, sequencing DNA, investigating immigration policies, seeking new meaning in Latin prose, or creating original literary and artistic work.
Many students co-author projects that are published in leading scholarly journals or presented at national conferences. A $500,000 grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation supports opportunities for student-faculty collaboration at Gettysburg College.
Experiences like these provide a competitive advantage when students apply to graduate school, and build a strong foundation for their career.
