Participate in real research

Pre-professional health will take your Calvin experience, regardless of your major, and transform it into broad, hands-on training for your chosen health profession.

As a student, there are many opportunities for you to get your hands dirty. The biology department alone has been awarded over $6 million in grants to fund rigorous, year-round research. In addition to the research you do in your biology classes, you have the opportunity to do research outside the classroom, assisting Calvin's top-notch professors with their projects.

The chemistry and biochemistry department also provides many exciting opportunities for you to participate in research. See a detailed full list of chemistry and biochemistry faculty research.

Summer research fellowships

A number of summer research fellowships are awarded to biology and other science division students each year. The fellowships are awarded after your first, second or third year at Calvin, with preference given to those interested in careers in science and/or science research.

Research involves ten weeks of work with a professor during the summer. A stipend of $3,700 is awarded, with additional funds for project supplies.
