Student Research

Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP) is Vanguard University’s formal summer undergraduate research program. Last year, there were 55 applications for SURP. Based on application quality, GPA, experience, and recommendations from professors, ~18 students will be selected to receive a SURP Fellowship.

Students, faculty, and the institution benefit when a vibrant undergraduate research culture is an important part of the University’s identity. Engagement in empirical research is directly correlated to increased student participation in the learning process, increased retention, enhanced learning experiences, and exemplifies a practical approach of integrating faith and learning.
