About the Crimson Research Institute Snow Program (CRISP)
Program Dates: December 19, 2022 - January 27, 2023
CRISP is a unique opportunity to complete a months-long research project in only six weeks! Use your winter break to learn new skills, engage with your peers, learn from top university professors and enhance your college applications from the comfort of your home.
During CRISP, students will write a research paper or complete a project with professor guidance in a small online group classroom setting of 3-10 students. All students who complete the course will receive a certificate at the end of the program.
It's a great learning opportunity for those new to research-- your project will feature your own original hypothesis using secondary data, which you can publish in professional academic journals.
No application required! Open to all eligible students.
