Undergraduate Research -- Summer

Applying                    Previous Students

The UGA Chemistry Department is soliciting applications from outstanding undergraduates at US and international universities who are majoring in chemistry and related disciplines for our Summer Undergraduate Research Opportunities (SURO) program. Students accepted into the SURO program will join active research groups and participate in projects directed by faculty members. These students will be introduced to new and innovative areas of research in a variety of chemistry sub-disciplines through close interaction with faculty members and exposure to other research within the department.


Collage of SURO students

This exciting and innovative program seeks to expose students who may have not have prior research exposure to the experience of planning and executing research in an advanced laboratory environment.  Through this program, students will create unique projects and learn to be independent researchers in their field.

This year's program will begin Tuesday, June 6, 2022 and end Friday, August 5, 2022. Participants will receive a $5000 stipend.
