Summer Research Scholars Nominations are due to the Associate Provost in the Provost office by January 30, 2015.

Summer Research Scholars

Projects are chiefly of two types:  assisting a professor in research or carrying out a student-planned project under the supervision of a professor. In either case, the supported work is conducted during the summer months.

Students are nominated in January for grants-in-aid by the professor with whom they will work the following summer.  Nominees must have a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.0. Most recipients are known as Summer Research Scholars; several outstanding students in the sciences will be designated Christian A. Johnson Scholars.

The Robert E. Lee Research Fund was established in 1960 through a gift from the late Dr. Gustavus Benz Capito, an 1899 graduate of Washington and Lee. Additional support has come from various sources, including the Christian A. Johnson Foundation and the E.A. Morris Foundation.

Please use the linked application to nominate a 2015 Summer Research Scholar. These nominations are due January 30, 2015.  Electronically submit to
