Spend your summer at the U of I!

Participating in an intensive research program is a great way to spend your summer: get to know another campus/city, earn money, learn what labs and faculty members are like, make friends in various fields, and develop skills that you need for graduate school!  The University of Iowa's summer research programs are second to none.  Yes, we are a bit biased, but here is why we love research at Iowa:
