Laidlaw Faculty Projects

You will spend your first summer as a Laidlaw scholar working on an internationally-focused research project—one that you have proposed or selected from our list of projects. Every Laidlaw scholar must work closely with an academic supervisor or an experienced research team. 

Available faculty projects are organized by topic below; however, students are not limited to working with these faculty. If you are interested in working with any of the faculty or projects below, contact the faculty member directly. 

Keep an eye on this list, which we are continually updating with new projects! Or check out our full list of Einaudi Center faculty associates to see what faculty are working in your area of interest.

Faculty who are interested in working with undergraduate research assistants on their internationally focused projects should complete our faculty project form, or email our Laidlaw coordinator
