Hughes Research Scholars
Hope has long emphasized the faculty-undergraduate student research partnership as a focal point in the teaching-learning process. There are annual opportunities for students to do full time summer (10 weeks) research. During their summer research experience, faculty and students collaborate to promote the teaching-learning process. Some students continue on through the academic year working with their faculty mentor(s), gaining ever more insight into the multiple facets of research and the HHMI program. Hope provides stipends for the research awardees through the generious funding of the National Science Foundation, the Research Experience for Undergraduates program in conjunction with HHMI and other donors. Each student will receive a research stipend, a research allotment, and travel expenses to a national or regional scientific meeting to present their work. Selection of student researchers is based upon academic record, research potential, professional aspirations, initiative, and independence.

Hughes Science Education Scholars
Hope promotes the development of pre-service K-12 teachers through the Hughes Science Education Scholars. Annually, stipends support roughly a handful of students intending a career in primary or secondary school science teaching for the summer to work with faculty on curriculum development projects. The Education Scholars participate in the faculty summer workshops on curriculum development, the student summer research program and in on-and off-campus presentations. These awardees work closely with their mentor(s) to ensure the best understanding and applicable experience possible. Each student receives a stipend, a research allotment and travel expenses to a national or regional scientific meeting to present their work. Selection of Education Scholars is based upon academic record, professional aspirations, initiative and independence.
