NSURP is a GO for 2021. New to 2021, Internships will be paid and full time!!
A community-driven initiative to create rewarding remote summer research opportunities for BIPOC and Latinx undergraduate students in the microbial sciences.
Summer projects in university labs, companies, and other organizations are vital opportunities to enrich undergraduate students’ learning. They’re invaluable tools for cultivating a deeper love for science, developing new skills, connecting with mentors, growing professional networks, and opening doors to new opportunities.
Unfortunately, campus and laboratory closures due to COVID-19 have forced the cancelation of many formal summer research experience programs. The impact of COVID-19 disruptions is especially profound on BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) and Latinx students.
The National Summer Undergraduate Research Project (NSURP) is designed to:
  1. Matchmake BIPOC and Latinx undergraduate students on a nationwide level to microbiology laboratory mentors who can provide a remote summer research project experience.
  2. Provide a BIPOC and Latinx science and professional development seminar series for those students.
  3. Provide a platform for the matched students to present their research online in an official capacity.
