Summer research opportunities for students

The OSU College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES) is soliciting applications for our 2024 summer undergraduate research programs. As a land-grant institution, we are devoted to accessible education and helping those in our communities through research translation and outreach. CFAES participates in two summer undergraduate research experience (REU) programs – the OSU Research Internship Program (ORIP) and the Summer Research Opportunities Program (SROP). Both programs provide full-time, paid, summer internship opportunities to budding researchers. Participants will be matched with a faculty mentor to pursue research at one of the top institutions in the nation. From understanding best practices for growing food, pest management, animal reproduction and nutrition, environmental quality, zoonotic diseases... the research at our college touches every aspect of life. ORIP The OSU Research Internship Program (ORIP) is an annual summer research internship opportunity for motivated graduating high school seniors and current underclassmen at college or university over the age of 18.

ORIP is tailored specifically to enhance student interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines. Through laboratory and field research, interns receive a hands-on experience in data collection and analysis, project design, and scientific communication of results. The coming program will run from May 13 to July 19, 2024. ORIP takes place on the CFAES Wooster Campus.

Students will take part in hands-on research and attend workshops to build their science and communication skills. The program runs for 9 weeks from May 28 to July 26, 2024. SROP takes place on both the CFAES Wooster and Columbus Campuses.
