HPU SUMMER RESEARCH PROGRAMS

Triad Logo Final


The Summer Research Institute (SuRI) – Since 2013. SuRI is open to undergraduates in all disciplines. Students are required to identify a faculty mentor with whom they will work during their summer research period and describe the project goal, method, and timeline. There may be some projects seeking student researchers. Students will be able to live on campus for free for the duration of the research within specific guidelines. The program runs June and July, although students may move into residence halls Monday following graduation (only if their research has started). Your dates and hours will be negotiated with your mentor. However, there is a mandatory weekly meeting on Thursdays 3:30-4:30 pm and a movie night each Tuesday. The application deadline is listed below.

  • Please review the SuRI application questions here and discuss them with your mentor to prepare your answers.

About the Program: Since its inception, the CSHS-SuRF program has provided undergraduates with the opportunity to participate in summer research. As a result of their mentored research experiences, these students have gone on to represent High Point University by giving peer-reviewed academic research presentations at national/international conferences and regional, state, and local venues. These students have also contributed as co-authors on manuscripts that have been published in esteemed peer reviewed journals. Go to http://www.highpoint.edu/healthsciences/publications-presentations/ to review publications and presentations from prior SuRF years.
