Students accepted into the 2014 C-SURP program will be matched with a faculty mentor working in their desired area of science or engineering at one of the CUNY colleges.

Students will work closely with their mentors and members of their research team to develop a project that can be conducted over the course of the 10-week program. Students will also work with their mentors to establish and maintain regular working hours. Students currently engaged in research in a CUNY lab should expect to be assigned to a different mentor.

All program participants will meet for weekly C-SURP programming every Thursday from 2-4 pm.  These activities will include research seminars, workshops on graduate school preparation, communication skills, research integrity and career development.  Past programs have also included behind the scenes trips to local museums. The program culminates in a final poster session where students present their work to peers, faculty and administrators.

A stipend of $3,500 (taxable) is offered to applicants accepted into the program, as well as monthly unlimited New York City Transit MetroCards to assist with transportation costs. The program aims to promote a sense of community among C-SURP scholars and encourages participants to take advantage of free University housing.

The program is open to students currently studying in any CUNY two-year or four-year college or any four-year accredited college in the USA. Students at four-year colleges should currently be in their sophomore or junior year and students at two-year colleges should have completed at least 30 credit hours at the time of application. Applicants should have a background in science or engineering. 

Participants of C-SURP may not take classes or hold other jobs for the duration of the program and are expected to attend all scheduled C-SURP seminars and activities. Due to the high number of applications, students who have previously participated in C-SURP are not eligible to reapply.
