Student Research

The Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP) is Vanguard University’s formal summer undergraduate research program. Last year, there were 46 applications for SURP. Based on application quality, GPA, experience, and recommendations from professors, ~18 students will be selected to receive a SURP Fellowship.

Dates: May 8th - July 13th, 2018
Hours: ~30 hours/week
Stipend: $3000 (peer-mentors receive $3600)
Housing: A limited number of on-campus housing options will be available. Please indicate the desire to live on-campus on your SURP application form and further instructions will be emailed to you.

If you have previously been a SURP fellow, you may apply to be a SURP Peer-mentor. Peer-mentors are important facilitators of how to do research and can provide invaluable insights into research methodologies including database management, instrumentation how-to's and troubleshooting, and symposium poster preparation.
