Each summer, GERS recruits advanced undergraduates to participate in a 10­-week research program, SURE. This opportunity is a way to learn in a hands­-on way about conducting research, be exposed to other disciplines, network, take part in social activities, and gain the tools necessary to succeed in graduate school.
