2018 Richter Scholars announced

Congratulations are in order for the 43 outstanding first-year students who have been selected to do research on campus this summer through the College’s well-regarded Richter Scholar Summer Research Program.

A record number of applications were submitted for consideration this year, and the Richter Scholar Committee selected students from an exceptionally strong applicant pool, according to Richter Scholar Committee Chair Desmond Odugu.

“We could not be more pleased by the academic quality of this Richter Scholar class and the diversity of backgrounds, interests, and cultures its members represent,” he said.

The Richter Scholar Summer Research Program provides students with the opportunity to conduct independent, individual research with Lake Forest College faculty early in their academic careers. The ultimate goal of this program is to foster a strong commitment to the intellectual life, and to encourage participating students to consider careers in research and teaching. 

The students will work one-on-one with a faculty member, doing independent research in one of a wide variety of fields. As the Richter Scholars live and work together and participate in a weekly colloquium, they become a community of peers, providing encouragement and support for one another’s research endeavors. The result is a group of scholars motivated to continue their intellectual achievement in the future.

These students will spend four to ten weeks on campus this summer participating in various research projects. Congratulations to the 2018 Richter Scholars, listed below.
