The Summer Research Institute

The Summer Research Institute (SRI) is a 10-week program for Barnard students who want to conduct scientific research during the summer. The program represents a $1 million annual commitment on the part of Barnard to support faculty-mentored research. Beyond Barnard administers the program in support of the faculty and the Office of the Provost. 

You can work with faculty at Barnard or elsewhere in the city. The SRI will provide a common experience for all students. It will also provide you the option of living in Barnard’s subsidized summer housing. Your research experience will be supplemented with academic and skill-building experiences, lectures, social events and a capstone poster event at the summer’s end.

If you have questions about applying to competitive fellowship programs, please email beyondbarnard@barnard.edu.
