The Chemistry Department offers research opportunities on Centenary's campus and in collaboration with the LSU Health Sciences Center in Shreveport. Many of our students have also obtained summer research positions at other institutions through NSF-REU and other programs
Summer Research Opportunities with Centenary Faculty
All members of the faculty regularly provide opportunities for students to carry out on-campus summer research in their laboratories.
Summer Research Opportunities at Other Institutions
The National Science Foundation, through its Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program, supports summer research programs at a number of institutions across the country.
The LSU Health Sciences Center in Shreveport (LSUHSC-S) is located about one mile from the Centenary campus. LSUHSC-S, being a research-intensive institution, is a rich source of opportunities for both academic year and summer research experiences.
Research Opportunities at US Department of Energy
When you join Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internships (SULI), you’ll be part of a Department of Energy (DOE) team that’s working together to advance scientific impact and discovery. Expand your skills and knowledge at a DOE national laboratory using state-of-the-art facilities and advanced scientific instruments.
Each year, students from around the country participate in SULI at one of the 17 participating DOE laboratories/facilities. In this comprehensive internship, you’ll be mentored by a leading science expert who will guide you in a specific research area to gain maximum exposure to one of the many science and technology areas that underpin the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) diverse missions. This is an opportunity for you to enhance your professional network and develop your interests in state-of-the-art research facilities and to enhance your professional network.
