Application DeadlinMarch
 15, 2019

We are pleased to announce the call for applications for the UM-Dearborn 2019 Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) program, which will run from May-August. The goal of the SURE Program is to expose undergraduate students to potential educational and research-oriented career paths and provide them with guidance in the practice of research. These goals are accomplished through faculty mentorship and training while students participate in a faculty member’s research or scholarly project.

A SURE Faculty Workshop will take place on Wednesday, February 20 from 12:30-2:30 pm in the Library to offer an overview of the SURE program and important information regarding the faculty mentoring role (lunch is included!) This workshop will feature a faculty panel presentation to discuss the benefits and challenges related to working with undergraduate students, as well as time before and after the panel discussion to ask any questions related to the SURE program and application process. All faculty planning to participate in this year's program are strongly encouraged to attend. Please RSVP using this link so we will have a head count for lunch.

The 2019 SURE program guidelines and link to the application portal are also available on the UM-Dearborn ORSP website. Faculty applications will be accepted through March 15, 2019. All proposals must be submitted via our web-based application portal by 11:59 pm on Friday, March 15. There will be no extensions and applications not received by the deadline will not be considered for funding. 

The Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) program is created to assist in formalizing existing opportunities and to expand participation of undergraduate students in faculty-led research projects.

The pilot program during the summer of 2018 included students from all four UM-Dearborn colleges which were funded by the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs, with supplemental funding from the College of Arts, Sciences, and Letters and the College of Engineering and Computer Science.
