Description: The Summer Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (SUROP) at Kansas State University (KSU) gives undergraduates from under-represented groups a first-hand experience with the research process. This experience is designed to help students prepare for graduate school and other advanced study.

Students selected to participate in the K-State program will be paired with faculty in research projects that match a student's interests. Faculty and other members of the research team are committed to working closely with the students to train them in research techniques as well as regularly discussing their projects and progress.  

Students will attend weekly seminars with other SUROP participants to learn more about the demands of the graduate school experience. At the end of the program, students will be expected to present an oral presentation about activities at the SUROP Finale and, together with their faculty sponsor, have an opportunity to evaluate their summer experience.

The program begins on May 30 and concludes on July 28, 2006. To be eligible to participate, applicants must be available for the entire time period of the program.
