Description: 

The Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP) is a 10-week internship that provides undergraduates from underrepresented groups with valuable research and professional development experience under the guidance of UVA Faculty conducting education research. This internship program is designed to encourage students from groups traditionally underrepresented in the field of education research to pursue graduate study and consider careers in academic, policy, or research organizations. Interns will work on research focusing on schools, classrooms, and other youth settings as contexts critical to child and adolescent development. They will also participate in developmental workshops and meetings, and present at a research conference.

SURP is an 10-week full-time program. Interns will spend 8 weeks in Charlottesville as well as participate in a week of pre- and post- internship work prior to arriving and after completion of the program. Interns arrive in Charlottesville June 4 and depart August 1. Interns must be able to commit to the full 10 weeks of the program (including weekends).
