Summer Undergraduate Research Experience
Shippensburg University is pleased to offer the Summer Undergraduate Research Experience program as a way for students to work with faculty on research over the summer. The purpose of the SURE program
is twofold: to nurture student researchers and to provide faculty members with
paid student research assistants during the summer. Students selected for the
program will receive a summer stipend for
research tasks assigned by a faculty supervisor. By assisting faculty members in their
research, students selected for the program will learn the knowledge and skills
necessary for conducting advanced research in their field.
The program is open to all faculty members and to those undergraduate students who will be enrolled as students at Ship during the semester following the summer program. Seniors graduating in May are not eligible for the SURE program.
The student/faculty pair are expected to present the project results and/or an evaluation of the grant program’s benefits to their academic growth at Academic Day at the end of the summer.
Projects will be awarded up to $750 for up to 100 hours of student work at $7.50/hr. On-campus housing is available at no charge. SURE participants may purchase 15-meal punch cards for $93 each.
