    Hi everyone,

    I'm doing research in a lab over the summer, and I'm also getting a stipend.

    Does this count as work experience?

    I believe so. It is paid work.

    So if you do research and are getting a stipend is it more accurate to list it as "Paid Employment" or "Research/Lab" in the application.

    listing it as research/lab is more specific so id list it as that.. just mention that you received a stipend.
