SURE - Summer Undergraduate Research Experience

Summer Undergraduate Research Experience

About the Program

Each year, applications are requested for summer undergraduate research positions in Engineering and Aviation Research at Saint Louis University.  All students interested in working in a research position during the summer are required to complete the application process as described below with preference given to rising sophomores, juniors and seniors. Students are expected to apply for specific research projects and hired to work within a specific area. 

The Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) is 10 weeks long, beginning on May 19 and ending on July 25. Each student is required to spend 40 hours/wk during those 10 weeks to complete their project. A research stipend of $400/week is provided and students are responsible for their housing arrangements and costs, food and transportation while enrolled in the program. There are additional activities scheduled during the summer requiring attendance (such as seminars, discussions, and tours) and a final seminar style presentation at the end of the summer program.

There are more than 40 research topics for students in the SURE program to choose from and is an excellent research opportunity for current Parks students.
