Each summer the Roy R. Charles Center for Academic Excellence at the College of William and Mary funds undergraduate student summer research projects. This summer 43 students received funding to conduct research both on and off campus in a variety of disciplines. Follow along as they document their progress and discuss their process on this blog. Click on Summer 2014 Posts to see the most recent submissions or access individual student’s posts from the Contributors page.

Projects from previous summers can be viewed through Summer 2013 Posts or Past Summers (2010-2012).
