From environmental impact on asthma in Peru, to healthcare delivery to the underserved in Ecuador, to history and self-denoted Identity in Morocco, students develop projects of scholarly merit that promote cross-cultural engagement.
Proposals are developed by the student in close collaboration with an Oxy faculty supervisor. Successful candidates are fully funded to do research for 8 to ten weeks over the summer. While abroad, recipients work full time on their project. Upon return to College, students present their projects to the Occidental community at the Undergraduate Research Conference held in the summer.
Research abroad scholars have successfully presented their projects at conferences and have utilized their work for senior comprehensive projects. Many Richter scholars successfully pursue graduate fellowships and graduate degrees overseas.
The Richter Research Abroad program is generously funded by the Joseph Edward Richter trust which maintains the Paul K. and Evalyn E. Cook Richter Memorial Funds.
