Scholarly Undergraduate Research Grants and Experiences (SURGE)
This program is meant to provide a path to connect students with faculty who are conducting research, creative endeavors, and other scholarly projects at SLU.
You can apply to opportunities posted in Handshake under the SURGE employer profile (search 'SLU SURGE'). You must provide a resume and a statement of purpose (cover letter) explaining why you want to be involved with this project.
