Thirty Eberly College students selected for Summer Undergraduate Research Experience

Through West Virginia University’s Office of Undergraduate Research, students can participate in research as early as their first semester on campus. Every semester, many Eberly College students take advantage of the resources provided by this office to match with faculty conducting research in their disciplines. The Summer Undergraduate Research Experience is an eight-week summer undergraduate research experience for students interested in careers in research or graduate school
within their disciplines. The selected students receive a stipend and conduct research full-time during those eight weeks. Congratulations to the 30 Eberly College students participating in SURE for 2019!
