Established in 1996, the highly-successful SURE Program provides students with an opportunity to perform significant, publishable research under the guidance of an experienced faculty researcher. This early research experience gives students a competitive advantage in graduate and professional school and in post-college employment opportunities.
SURE grants are awarded based on a competitive application process. The purpose of the SURE Program is to enhance learning opportunities for students by encouraging collaboration between students and faculty while undertaking a scholarly endeavor. The experience, available in all disciplines, helps to solidify and define students' career choices—both through graduate school decisions and in post-college employment.
