Win $500 with the SURE Award

Did you know that Honors students have the opportunity to win up to $500 for their research? Apply here for the UHP/Sigelman Undergraduate Research Enhancement (SURE) Award for your chance.

“Undergraduate Research Enhancement” may not sound the most exciting (well, to most people at least, but you are UHPers), but the funds can contribute to incredible research. Previous SURE Award winners used their winnings to conduct 3D scanning of bones at the Smithsonian, study lasers and present their findings at a national conference, and research the influence of sports rhetoric on political campaigns,

The application, due Friday February 7th, includes:

  1. Student Application Form
  2. Faculty Statement of Support
  3. Unofficial GW Transcript

Please note that the UHP SURE award is different from the university-wide one. There is a SURE Research award that is available to all students, but this one is a specific fund that is set aside for UHP students. Make sure you take advantage of the opportunity!

Good Luck!
