Created in 1997, the Emerson Foundation Grant Program was designed to provide students with significant opportunities to work collaboratively with faculty members, researching an area of interest. Covering a range of topics, recipients explore fieldwork, laboratory and library research and the development of teaching materials. The students will make public presentations of their research throughout the academic year.

Research Stories

  • This summer, 149 Hamilton students received Hamilton funding to engage in research with faculty mentors. Communications/Marketing Office intern Claire Williams ’25 has followed up with a few of them to find out what they learned through their work.

  • In 2016, the New York State government implemented a financial incentive program to make electric vehicles a more affordable choice and increase their adoption. Brian Hu ’24 spent his summer studying the effectiveness of this rebate program on electric vehicle adoption.
