ACORN 2021

2022 dates coming soon!

Do you ever wish you were the forensic scientist on the crime scene? Do you enjoy hands-on scientific and mathematical research? If so, then Alma College’s ACORN (Alma College Research Network) program is for you.

First-year science and mathematics students have the extraordinary opportunity to engage in research before they even step foot on campus! Prior to their freshman year, selected students are invited to begin their academic journey through the ACORN summer research opportunity alongside Alma faculty and other students.


Once you’re here, the opportunities only get better:

  • Science-focused four-week Spring Term courses provide opportunities for students to study in the lab or out in the field, working side-by-side with a faculty member.
  • Students can apply for a summer research opportunity at Alma under the exclusive direction of a faculty member.
