Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE)
Help us raise $26,000 for four student-faculty pairs

The College of the Science funds undergraduate students to participate in a faculty-mentored research experience during the summer. The Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) program allows students to apply the knowledge they gain from their course work in a research setting and earn wages to support their education. A fully funded student-faculty pair requires $6,500.

What students are saying about SURE:

“The SURE Program has helped me to become more proactive about working for and obtaining my career goals by extending to me the incredible opportunity to participate in a faculty‐mentored research project.” –Geological Sciences major

“Giving students the opportunity to do undergraduate research is very beneficial. SURE has given me the experience and practice that has prepared me fo research I will be doing in the future.” –Mathematics major

“It is great to get paid to research. Students who have to work to pay for school often miss out on research experiences but SURE lets you do both.” –Biological Sciences major
