Maple Scholars Summer Research Program


Whether it’s exploring the relationship between math and music, testing the stress levels of drunk honeybees, or developing curriculum for a criminal justice course at the county jail, each year Goshen College students spend the summer doing intense study and research during the college’s eight-week Maple Scholars program.

During the program, each scholar is paired with a faculty member who serves as both colleague and supervisor. Creating a community of scholars, the students all live together and take turns presenting their research and answering questions during Friday colloquiums. At the end is a celebration day when the results of each project are presented to the public. View past projects in the Maple Scholars Archives.
