ACCA Student Symposium
Students do an independent research project, prepare an abstract and then give an oral presentation of their results at the annual ACCA (Associated Colleges of the Chicago Areas) Symposium. Projects may be theoretical, lab or field studies and students receive a stipend to allow them to work full time on their project.
Two research options for science and mathematics students:
- Pence-Boyce Research Program Fellowships — Named in honor of two Olivet professors, Elbert Pence (physics) and Fannie Boyce (mathematics), and funded by alumni and friends of Olivet.
- Olivet Research Associates Program – Set up to fund research in science and mathematics. This program allows students to work closely with a faculty member on a forward-looking, 10-week research project during the summer.
