The CUNY Summer Undergraduate Research Program (C-SURP) is now accepting applications.

The CUNY Summer Undergraduate Research Program invites applications from talented undergraduates who are interested in research careers in the sciences or engineering. The Program offers practical research experience and is open to students interested in key research areas in the biological, physical, and chemical sciences, and in engineering. These areas may include energy technologies, nanoscience, photonics, environmental science, neuroscience, and structural biology, among others. In accordance with their expressed scientific interests, successful applicants will be matched with a faculty mentor at one of the CUNY senior colleges. In addition to working with a faculty mentor, students will participate in a weekly lecture/workshop series on topics related to their research. The program culminates in a final poster session where each student will present his/her own work. All undergraduates completing their sophomore or junior years may apply.

The application deadline is Thursday, March 1, 2012.

For more information on the research projects available or to download the application, visit the Program Website.

Students interested in applying may contact Dr. Geoff Hempill at or 718.982.2301 for assistance with their applications. Further information can also be found in the Career and Scholarship Center in Building 1A, Room 105.
