Due Today: Summer Undergraduate Research Program Applications

The Summer Undergraduate Research program is a collaboration — a means to discover, create, and acquire new knowledge and methods for students during the summer. The deadline to apply is March 4.

The Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP) is an opportunity for students to fully engage in a hands-on educational experience of scholarship, research, and creative activity with a faculty mentor.

It’s time to develop a summer research proposal. SURP supports ongoing scholarly and creative activities that exemplify learning while doing, where undergraduate students are actively engaged in discovery with a faculty mentor during the summer. Funding for a stipend and/or housing is from the Brockport College Foundation.
