Calvin University, for many years, has encouraged and arranged research opportunities for its students.

Academic year research is an opportunity where Calvin's nursing research assistants work alongside faculty; whereas large institutions don't offer that opportunity to undergraduate students. Calvin's Women Supporting Women Initiative provided that opportunity. Other nursing students research during the summer when students work with faculty and receive salary support in the form of summer research fellowships. For more information, consult the Science Division's Summer Research site.

McGregor Summer Research Student Fellowship Program

McGregor Fellows will earn a stipend of $3,300 for nine weeks of full-time work during the summer months. They will also partner with a faculty member, participate in a weekly colloquium with other McGregor Fellows, and present research results at a professional presentation determined by the faculty mentor and student fellow.

Women Supporting Women

Depression and anxiety are mental health issues that disproportionately affect urban, ethnically diverse, impoverished women—articularly when access to culturally sensitive care is limited. Researchers on the Women Supporting Women project designed an intervention study and observe its effectiveness in six different groups.

H.E.A.L.T.H. Camp

H.E.A.L.T.H. Camp is a summer day camp for kids age 9-15 that aims to help them learn about their health and explore jobs in the healthcare field. Calvin faculty and students interact with camp participants across a week of learning and discovery.
