SURE in the Professional Studies

Please note: Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the safety measures we have implemented on campus, we invite proposals for summer 2021 SURE projects that are either fully remote or in-person with appropriate COVID safety precautions.

The Summer Undergraduate Research Experience in the Professional Studies Division provides research opportunities for students studying accounting, finance, education, exercise and sport science, athletic training, management, marketing, nursing, and social work.

Students selected for the SURE program spend 10 weeks during the summer engaged in full-time research and intensive scholarship with a faculty mentor. The program provides a stipend.

Deadline to apply: Monday, March 15, 2021

The SURE committee seeks applications from students in their first through third year of study at Carthage, and welcomes students from any of the majors offered on campus. Each division evaluates proposals and supports their own faculty and student collaborations. Please make certain you are using the application process of the division that is the primary home of the faculty mentor. Interested students should speak with a project advisor before completing the SURE application. SURE 2021 award winners will be announced on March 30, 2021.
