SURE Awards
Summer Undergraduate Research Experience Awards

Undergraduate research can be one of the most important and rewarding experiences a student has during their time at Sacramento State’s College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics. Through hands-on research, students apply the knowledge and skills they learn in a classroom to tackle open-ended problems with no obvious answers - just like those they will face in graduate school and in the workforce. These research experiences push students beyond the bounds of their existing knowledge, challenging their creativity, determination, and resourcefulness. It’s through these experiences that students come to truly understand and navigate the “messiness” of science – a process of trial, error and new discovery.

 

The SURE Program is a paid summer research experience for undergraduate students. Working closely with a faculty mentor in their lab, students conduct research in biological sciences, chemistry, geology, geography, math and statistics, and physics and astronomy fields. Many Sacramento State students work while going to school, making it challenging to find time for other academic pursuits beyond the classroom. As a paid opportunity, the SURE Program helps alleviate the need for additional employment during the summer, allowing students to focus more fully on their research endeavors.

 

Funding towards the SURE Awards supports: student salary while conducting research; faculty mentors to work during the summer with students; supplies and materials; and student and faculty travel to academic conferences to present their research.
