Summer Undergraduate Research Opportunity

Whether you are interested in mathematics or physics, art or art history, political science, or social work—the Museum can be a great resource for your ideas! The Kemper Art Museum offers opportunities to support independent student research projects as part of the Summer Undergraduate Research Award program (SURA).

The SURA project should take place in summer prior to junior or senior year. One award is available for a project that is expected to last for less than ten weeks ($2,500 max. award). Candidates must have excellent research skills in addition to a background in the discipline directly related to the proposed project. The online SURA application should be completed by March 1.
