A stipend of $4500 is provided from which the students pay rent (about $600). The participants are expected to work intensely with daily guidance from faculty and graduate students. Assistance with methodology, organization, analysis and recording of data, and with scientific deduction are provided. One two-hour SURP group meeting per week is required where career enhancing topics are discussed.
The SURP culminates with a "mini-symposium" of oral presentations attended by the faculty and participants. At this event, fifteen minute formal presentations of research results demonstrate each student's accomplishments. A final written report of peer-review publication quality is also required and forms the basis of a large bound journal from our NSF Science and Technology Center.
This summary was an optional part of the SURP program where students voluntarily participated on creating resumes, project descriptions and final project summaries for web access. Two classes will be organized and taught by Dr. R.D. Kriz. Results are posted above. To establish uniformity Ms. Joyce Moser will type up all of the Project Descriptions into a common format. The students will do their own resumes. Ms. Joyce Moser will be responsible for organizing the Web page for the SURP Educational Program with information for next years program.
