Summer Undergraduate Research in Physiology (SURP) program to Promote Diversity of Future Scientists - Deadline 2/1/20

This opportunity has already passed.

The Summer Undergraduate Research in Physiology (SURP) program at the University of Michigan Medical School offers outstanding underrepresented undergraduates the opportunity to conduct intensive research across a variety of disciplines. The goal is to prepare students for advanced studies in one of the Ph.D. programs at the University of Michigan.

The SURP program allows undergraduates the opportunity to work on graduate level research projects with faculty. Students work with faculty mentors either on an individual basis or as part of a research team. In addition, all participants engage in a series of academic, professional, and personal development seminars. Participants present their research at a concluding summer research symposium.

SURP participants are expected to participate full-time for 12-weeks from May 26 through August 14, 2020. Participants may not enroll for classes, concurrent summer programs, or hold other employment during the period of the program.

Interested students must complete an online application by February 1, 2020.

Admission Requirements:

Undergraduate students who have completed 1-3 years of college by the time of their internship are qualified to apply. Students who have successfully completed SURP program in previous years are encouraged to apply, provided that their mentors agree to accept them into their labs again. Applicants must be U.S citizens or permanent residents with minimum overall GPA of 3.0. Letters of support are required. Students from racial and ethnic minority groups or low-income family backgrounds or who are first-generation college students are especially encouraged to apply.

The Diversity Program Consortium Coordination and Evaluation Center at UCLA is supported by Office of the Director of the National Institutes of Health / National Institutes of General Medical Sciences under award number U54GM119024.
