The Student Scholarly Engagement (SSE) Program

Gettysburg College seeks to build a scholarly community by engaging and supporting students in research and creative pursuits inside and outside of the classroom, the goal being to develop within those students intellectual curiosity, a capacity for contemplating deeper questions, and a commitment to life-long learning.

To this end, the College’s SSE program has as its focus two main functions:

  1. Undergraduate Research & Creative Activity
    In addition to providing information about opportunities for students to engage in these kinds of activities, the SSE program, through the Office of the Provost, offers funding and venues for students to present their work.

  2. Fellowship and Scholarship Advising
    For students interested in scholarship and post-baccalaureate opportunities, the SSE program encourages and assists students in navigating the application processes for nationally competitive fellowships and scholarships, such as the Fulbright and the Goldwater, emphasizing the value of the process itself in furthering their intellectual growth and propelling them to greater post-graduate excellence.
