HMCSE Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP)
The Hal Marcus College of Science and Engineering (HMCSE) Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP) is designed to expose undergraduate students to advanced research in their field of study.
Students selected to participate in SURP will spend 20-25 hours per week for 10-12 weeks working on a research project under close supervision of a faculty mentor. This activity involves faculty and student collaboration in original research that should result in some tangible product (i.e. publication, presentation, etc.), but it's most valuable contribution is the development of the student in ways not possible in traditional classroom settings.
In an effort to maximize the experience, student participants are expected to work 20-25 hours per week on their designated research project. As a result, participants should not be enrolled in more than one summer course. All fellows will be required to submit a formal report, write a thank you note to the sponsor and present their results at the 2018 Hal Marcus College of Science and Engineering Summer Scholars Symposium. Participation in the UWF Student Scholars Symposium poster session is strongly encouraged. Additional opportunities to present the result of the research at local, regional, or national scientific meetings may also be possible.
$2500 stipend for 12 weeks of research to each student participant
