Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP)

The Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP) is designed for undergraduate students to gain valuable, hands-on research experience and develop critical thinking, analytical, and communication skills. Research experiences will be a mix of onsite and virtual programming depending on the project and the status of COVID restrictions this summer.

Depending on the research project, programs may be either 5 or 10 weeks. Stipends for students are nominally $2,000 for 5 weeks and $4,000 for 10 weeks.

Students work with a faculty mentor on a research project and attend professional development seminars. At the end of the summer students will present their research in a virtual poster session. The SURP program activities will run between May 17 and July 31. Research hours will be determined by the specific research project assignment.

We encourage undergraduate students of all experience and academic levels to participate. Start by completing this brief form indicating your interests:
