Thinking about a research career? Be S.U.R.E.
The University of Dayton’s Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (S.U.R.E.) is a highly competitive opportunity for undergraduate engineering and engineering technology majors to spend 10 weeks on campus working on a faculty-led research project. Selected students will receive a $5000 fellowship award for participating and may apply for an additional $1000 for travel to present findings at a conference.
S.U.R.E. and other summer fellow cohorts will network, participate in professional development and have fun. Students enjoy weekly lunches, a team service component, evening activities and a number of workshops on topics from technical writing to applying to grad school. Housing is available on the University of Dayton campus for a fee.
Fellows are selected by participating faculty; interested students must submit an online information form that includes a brief statement of research interest, their résumé and a letter of recommendation. Internal candidates must have completed their first year at UD or the Sinclair Academy.
