Berger Institute Research Grant

This grant supports and expands the ongoing research of CMC students and faculty by helping to defray the costs of a specific, student-led project. All disciplines and research methodologies are welcome and the research should address contemporary social issues that is of interest to the student. The recipient of this grant is required to conduct research under the supervision of, or in collaboration with, a faculty member. The award amount varies according to the scope and subject of the project.

Summer Internships

Students can gain real world experience by participating in a summer internship with one of the organizations that the Berger Institute has partnered with. The organizations are related to work and family research and/or policy. Participating will allow students to be exposed to how companies deal with and manage work/family issues among their employees.
