Undergraduate Research Programs

Marist College School of Science is pleased to announcing a research program funded by the School of Science and the Dr. J. Richard LaPietra Sponsored Student Research Fund To Enhance  Excellence in Chemistry Studies.


J. Richard LaPietra Chemistry Summer Research Program

Through The Dr. J. Richard LaPietra Sponsored Student Research Fund To Enhance Excellence in Chemistry Studies, the School of Science at Marist College will annually support a chemistry or biochemistry student committed to pursuing a summer research project under the supervision of a Marist faculty member. This opportunity is made possible through the generosity of Mrs. Barbara LaPietra, who wished to honor her husband’s 41years of service as a chemistry professor and inspirational mentor and advisor to thousands of students at Marist.

The purpose of the funding is to provide real research experiences for a Marist chemistry or biochemistry student who has a genuine desire and ability to pursue scientific research. Interested students should initially make contact with a faculty member from the Department of Chemistry, Biochemistry & Physics who is willing to donate his or her time to advise the student over the summer. The student should then discuss a suitable project to pursue over this time.

This ten-week program is anticipated to start the first week of June and culminate in a formal presentation and report. Students are expected to treat the project as a full-time job over this period. The LaPietra Fund will cover a stipend, on-campus housing, and limited expenses for supplies. Preference will be given to students with a strong academic record and a commitment to scientific research.
