Yale students can also perform research with a faculty member during the summer months, which allows students to devote full-time effort to a research project. Summer research enables students to continue research that was initiated during the previous academic year or to begin research that will be continued during the following academic year. Sometimes the faculty member has grant funds that can support students during the summer. Other possibilities for financial support can be found at https://science.yalecollege.yale.edu/yale-science-engineering-research/fellowship-grants. Interested students should consult a member of the Yale faculty or the director of undergraduate studies. Academic credit is not granted unless the student is registered in (and paying tuition to) the Yale summer school.
Summer research at other institutions (including those outside the United States) is possible through several programs. More information can be found at: http://yalecollege.yale.edu/student-services/funding-opportunities, http://science.yalecollege.yale.edu/yale-science-engineering-research/fellowship-grants. Yale does not award academic credit for research done at other institutions, even if done in the context of a course.
