Summer Undergraduate Research Experience
The University of South Dakota Veteran's Affairs, and Sanford Research is home to the Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE), a unique opportunity for American Indian undergraduate students to receive hands-on research experience and mentoring in a cross-disciplinary training program (biomedical or behavioral research).
SURE builds students’ capacity to conduct independent research while preparing them with greater skills and ideas to develop their future career paths.
This program offers American Indian undergraduates the opportunity to explore their interest in pursuing careers in the health science professions and in health disparities research.
Listen to our radio advertisement.
“Without SURE I wouldn't have been given the opportunity to become more involved in health disparities. The program gave me the confidence to know that I have something to offer and that I can make a difference in American Indian health.” – SURE 2013 Intern

“It was wonderful getting to know my student and seeing the steps she took throughout the summer. I feel like we were just getting to know each other and that she was beginning to open up. It would have been great to have had a few more weeks with her. I think she has the capacity to really learn a lot from research but the time went too quickly!” – SURE 2014 Mentor
