SURE in the Professional Studies

Please note: Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Carthage has moved to remote learning for the 2020 spring semester. Because of this, we’ve decided to continue with SURE, but to only support remote-research and creative experiences.

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: Wednesday, April 15, 2020 

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 2020 award winners will be announced in mid-April.
