SURE Grant Application
You may use this form to begin the application process for the SURE program. Electronic applications are due to Dr. Kimberly Reiter, Chair of the Undergraduate Research Committee by March 12. Printed components of the Application (i.e., your transcript) can be sent via campus mail to Unit 8344, or dropped off in the History Department office, Elizabeth Hall 312. If you have any questions, please contact
- A narrative description (not to exceed 1,500 words) of the goals and methodology of the proposed research project, including appropriate references, and written in accordance with the canons of the student's academic discipline. The narrative must minimally address: the purpose of the proposed research, the methods and procedures for achievement of the objectives, and the form and dissemination of the research results. For those requesting research-related funds, an additional budget sheet should outline both the amounts and purpose of those funds (e.g. travel, equipment, photocopying), up to and not to exceed $500.
- A 100-200 word abstract of your project, including your title, your name, and your advisor's name. This abstract should summarize your project's essential content. It should be written so as to be understandable to a non-specialist in your field. For example of abstracts, see the showcase web site. Please forward a printed version of your abstract that should be included with all application materials.
- A copy of the student's Stetson academic transcript (available from the registrar).
If the sponsoring faculty mentor can show that a SURE recipient has not completed SURE research in good faith within reasonable expectations, or if the student does not undertake the proposed project at all, that student is liable for return of the $2000 stipend. Failure to do so will be counted as an outstanding account and impede the student's ability to graduate. The student may petition the Undergraduate Research Committee if there are extenuating circumstances.
