Research and exploration under the leafy green trees of summer
The Maple Scholars program, initially introduced in 1998 for students in the sciences – biology, chemistry, physics – has expanded to include students doing research in other disciplines such as art, communication and environmental studies. For students interested in graduate school, the opportunities for longer-term research and potential publication is an excellent experience and résumé builder.
While many universities sponsor research projects, involving undergraduates in original research on a small liberal arts campus is unique and pays off for students seeking further education, as Goshen ranks in the top sixth of U.S. colleges for graduates who go on to earn doctoral degrees.
