Summer Research with Professors at Keck Graduate Institute (KGI) in Claremont

This summer Webb students considering a career in medicine, the sciences or entrepreneurship will have the opportunity to participate in an academic partnership with faculty at Keck Graduate Institute in Claremont.
 
Founded in 1997, through a generous $50 million grant from the W.M. Keck Foundation, Keck Graduate Institute represents The Claremont Colleges’ first entry into graduate-level, application-based scientific research and education. It remains the only graduate institute in the country with this sole focus.
 
Working alongside college students in a university lab researching microbiology and drug discovery to cure infectious diseases, Webb student researchers will be paid and have the extraordinary opportunity to publish.
 
Keck Graduate Institute professors Anastasia Levitin, PhD, and Mikhail Martchenko, PhD, are providing (and overseeing) this one-of-a-kind summer research program for Webb students.

  • Fall/Winter 2019

    “The process of finding the right college is more often than not riddled with anxiety for both students and their families. It is paradoxically both increasingly complex and more streamlined than ever. Technology allows students to simply add multiple colleges to the Common Application with a few clicks. And yet the convenience doesn’t reflect the intricate web of criteria that factor into applying to one college over another.”
