The McDonnell-Follin Scholars Program supports the in-depth study of an academic area by a student in the junior class for one semester while being supported by a member of the faculty or administration. It is a student-driven program wherein the student will create the course of study in consultation with the proposed mentor. The mentor and student will meet one or two times per week to check on the progress and development of new ideas. At the end of the semester the student will present his/her work to a faculty committee who will then ask questions of the student about his/her research.
