At the University of Chicago Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, we want students to have access to academic and cultural resources, but to also have opportunities independent of the classroom and student life. Thus, the following is a list of opportunities where students can go to search for funding, enrich their summers or find work after graduation.

Summer Undergraduate Research Program at the Medical University of South Carolina

The College of Graduate Studies at the Medical University of South Carolina is currently accepting applications for the Summer Undergraduate Research Program 2011 (SURP).

SURP provides unique opportunities for undergraduates to become directly involved in cutting edge research for 10 weeks [May 31, 2011 through August 5, 2011] in beautiful Charleston, South Carolina. It also allows them opportunities for student-faculty and student-student interaction so that they can learn more about the research training at MUSC.

Awards of at least $4000 are preferentially made to college students who are considering a research career in the basic sciences. Minority students are encouraged to apply. Students should be able to arrange their own travel. The program provides information about and assistance to find adequate housing. Upon successful completion of the program you will earn 15 semester hours of credit, which may be applicable at your home institution.

The application deadline is January 31, 2011.

Charleston is a city filled with a rich history and a variety of cultural and recreational opportunities. The South Carolina Lowcountry is an attractive environment in which to live and study during the summer months.
