Summer Research in Geosciences and Engineering (SURGE)
Each SURGE scholar is matched with a Stanford faculty member and will work in a research group or laboratory. The scholar is assigned an interesting and challenging project from a broad range of science and engineering topics that are accesible during the eight week summer period. SURGE also includes workshops on preparing for the GRE, applying to graduate school, and understanding geoscience and engineering careers. The program culminates with a research symposium, where scholars present results of their summer projects to faculty, mentors and colleagues. The total SURGE packageprovoided to each SURGE scholar is worth about $12,000.
