We are currently planning for the 2023 SURE-REU program to begin Monday, May 22nd at 9am and end on Friday July 28th. 

All participants MUST arrive on Sunday, May 21st. Please do not consider applying if you will be unable to meet this requirement.

Participants will receive a stipend of $6000; a food allowance of $800 and travel support up to $450.

The online application opens in October, and we will review applicants and extend offers on a rolling basis starting in January. In March, we will make lab placements in consultation with accepted participants. At the end of May, students will travel to Chapel Hill for the 10-week residential program. They will participate in a welcome reception, program orientation, lab safety, and harassment training, followed by the research-intensive phase. There will be twice-weekly professional development workshops throughout the program.

Review of the applications will begin on January 16. For full consideration, submission of applications, including all supporting materials, must be complete by February 17th. Offers of admission will begin in early to mid-February.


Due to the large volume of applications, the program will notify only selected participants.
