The College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences (CEOAS) offers SURP funds to support undergraduate student research projects, including expenses associated with presenting research at conferences through an application process. These funds are not awards or stipends.

The funds can be used to pay for supplies, expenses, and travel costs related to an undergraduate student research project. Examples include travel to field sites, laboratory supplies, analysis fees, etc. Students may request funds for conference travel to present research, which may include travel, lodging, abstract fees, and conference registration costs.  Funds typically do not exceed $750 for research costs and $500 for conference support, but all reasonable requests will be considered.

All CEOAS degree-seeking undergraduates are eligible to apply for these funds.  Student may receive funds no more than once for research costs and once for conference support.  An OSU faculty mentor willing to supervise the research must be identified and submit a letter of support.

Applications are reviewed each term, with the deadline Friday of Week 2.
