The Summer Undergraduate Research Experience

SURE icon

The Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) is a summer internship program that takes place on The University of Texas at Austin campus for undergraduate students interested in research in psychology and who are currently attending a college or university in the state of Texas. The program provides hands-on training that will make students more competitive for top doctoral training programs.

We strongly encourage students from traditionally underrepresented groups to apply. Students who are accepted into the SURE program will be involved in all aspects of the research process, increasing the student’s knowledge about, and enthusiasm for, laboratory and field work in psychology.
