SURP Program

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. Student stipends are supported by a variety of sources including major funding by the NASA New Jersey Space Grant Research Cluster program, National Science Foundation, National Institutes for Health, industry sponsors, and Rowan University. 

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. SURP 2021 program activities will run between May 17 and July 31. Research hours will be determined by the specific research project assignment.
