Summer Research in Geoscience and Engineering (SURGE)


View this Opportunity's Website 


Academic Level:
Undergraduates - Sophomore
Undergraduates - Junior
Undergraduates - Senior

Description:
The underlying philosophy of SURGE is to train students by creating a supportive and rigorous work environment. We set high expectations for our scholars, both to prepare them for a career in the field of geosciences, Earth and environmental sciences, and engineering, and to ensure that they get the most from their stay at Stanford. Each SURGE scholar is matched with a Stanford faculty member and has the opportunity to work in a research group or laboratory. The scholar is assigned an interesting and challenging project from a broad range of Earth and environmental science and engineering topics that are accessible within the eight-week summer period. SURGE also includes workshops on preparing for the GRE, applying to graduate school, and understanding geoscience and engineering careers. The program culminates with a research symposium, where scholars present results from their summer projects to faculty, mentors, and colleagues. Undergraduates majoring in Earth sciences, engineering, chemistry, computer science, math, biology, and physics are encouraged to apply.
