Butler Summer Institute
Butler Summer Institute provides an opportunity for students to work one-on-one with a faculty mentor for two months during the summer on a creative, scholarly, or research project. Students are housed on campus for the duration of the program and receive a stipend. In addition to conducting their projects, students are expected to attend weekly luncheon seminars and other activities. Proposals will only be accepted from students who have already submitted a Letter of Intent on the appropriate deadline. For information on deadlines, please visit the website or call the University Research Programs office. Participants are not allowed to take summer classes or hold jobs outside of the program during the Institute. At the end of the Institute, each student will give a short oral presentation on the results of their project. A report summarizing the results of the project is due within 60 days of the end of the program.
