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.
