In an effort to encourage and support the involvement of Undergraduate Students in a research experience, the Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activities (RSCA) program encourages faculty mentors to participate in the SUNY New Paltz Undergraduate Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE). The focus of this research program is to encourage student participation in faculty-mentored research, scholarship, or creative activities that generate new knowledge or works.
Funding will support faculty-mentored undergraduate research projects performed over an 8-week period (typically May 28-July 19) during summer 2013. Faculty mentors will direct and provide guidance to participating students. Students will receive a stipend to work full-time on the project over the 8-week summer period. All SURE students will be required to present the results of their work during the fall 2013 semester.
A workshop on proposal preparation will be offered for faculty and students in advance of the April 2 deadline for applications. Anyone interested in attending this workshop should contact Maureen Morrow by March 4. Award Announcements will be made on or about April 24, 2013.
