Chemistry Summer Research Institute (CSRI) at CSU Chico

Jump-start your career! Become part of CSRI by carrying out undergraduate research in Chemistry or Biochemistry at Chico State. Each summer faculty volunteer their time to work closely with and mentor students on a variety of interesting projects. Most of the students that are accepted into CSRI receive a fellowship that provides a stipend of $3500 for 10 weeks of research. Student fellowships are generously funded by a variety of granting agencies, industry partners, Chemistry & Biochemistry faculty (current or emeritus), and alumni donors. Please examine the "summer seminars" on our department's seminar page to view some our CSRI research activities from the present back until 2007.
