Stonehill Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE)

The Stonehill Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) program is an opportunity for students who have completed their first year at Stonehill to perform significant, publishable full time research under the guidance of and in collaboration with an experienced faculty researcher.

The experience, available in all disciplines, helps to solidify and define students' career choices, both through graduate school decisions and in post-college employment. All SURE Scholars and faculty mentors receive a stipend for an 8- or 10-week full-time summer session.


Applications for the summer program are made jointly by the student and the faculty mentor and are due in December of the preceding summer. The application deadline for Summer 2016 is December 4, 2015 at 5:00 p.m. in Duffy 119.
