Summer Scholar Program Donors

Each year, Denison invests more than $820,000 into the independent and collaborative research that students conduct either through the Summer Scholars Program or academic-year projects. Such intellectual activity–in all academic disciplines–is not just a must-have for students who want to pursue graduate study; it has become a hallmark of the intense and distinctive academic experience at Denison.

Of course, that experience would not be possible without the following endowments for student research, and the many generous donors who contribute to these funds:
