Yes - it is the time of year that many students are putting summer plans in place. This is spring break week at SMC - so many students have been home, where some are likely making or renewing contacts for summer jobs or internship at home.
It's also the time to secure summer research opportunities. Several deadlines just passed for students applying for funding to stay on campus for the summer and do research with our faculty - and notifications will be going our soon to those who were successful.
As one example of the kinds of research opportunities that we offer - Biology professor Mark Lubkowitz recently received a grant from the National Science Foundation to be part of a multi-insitution research team investigating genetic control of carbohydrate movement in corn. This project will include hiring several research students each year for the next five years. Read more about Mark's Plant Genome Grant.
