SURP 2023 Student Application
SURP provides a multi-week fellowship opportunity that either connects students with Pomona College faculty research programs or facilitates student-driven projects. The goal of SURP is to support a broad range of activities that will continue to stimulate students' thinking and growth during the summer, including (but not limited to) reading, writing, collecting and analyzing data, and creative expression. We encourage all interested returning students to identify a line of inquiry or a creative project that they are eager to pursue. Projects should be manageable in scope so that they can be completed within 4 to 8 weeks. These projects may be:
- a Research Assistantship designed by and under the direction of a Pomona College faculty mentor,
- a student-designed Summer Project, which is a creative, artistic, or research project, under the mentorship of a Pomona College faculty. The level of oversight needed can be determined by the Pomona faculty member and the student.
- Additionally, unique research opportunities at other institutions can be considered, provided that a Pomona faculty member endorses the student applicant’s qualifications and the relevance of the opportunity to the student’s academic goals. Students are strongly encouraged to primarily seek funding from the host institution and demonstrate these efforts in their SURP application.
