University of Georgia Summer Undergraduate Research Program

The Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP) offers outstanding undergraduates the opportunity to work closely with faculty in an intensive summer research experience. SURP gives undergraduate students first hand exposure to the experiences of graduate school and faculty life by placing them with faculty whose work is closely related to their academic interests and professional goals. Students work under faculty mentorship on an individual basis or as part of a research team. Research teams may also include graduate students, research scientists and other SURP students.

Host Institution(s)
