Emory University was established in 1836 and includes undergraduate and graduate schools of arts and sciences, the Goizueta Business School, a medical school and the school of law. The latest school, the Rollins School of Public Health, was added in 1990. Approximately 11,600 students receive instruction from 2,700 faculty members at this well-respected institution.
During their stay, students in the Emory summer undergraduate research program (SURE) conduct scientific research under the supervision of a faculty mentor. The culmination of their research is participation in a formal academic symposium. Intern responsibilities include working 40 hours a week, attending workshops and seminars on science careers and research ethics and presenting their research at the symposium.
Open to all undergraduates, though sophomores, juniors and seniors are given preference. The program is designed for students who plan to enter PhD programs upon graduation.
