Additional Information:

SURE fellows are expected to attend all program activities, assigned weekly ethics group discussions, and laboratory meetings or journal clubs as determined by the research mentor. If you accept a SURE fellowship, you agree to work full-time (with research-related program and laboratory activities counting towards that “full time” status). Although we sympathize with the academic pressures faced by our participants, enrollment in MCAT/GRE/LSAT training programs should not interfere with attendance to program activities. SURE participants cannot enroll for summer school. At current time, it is not possible for us to award research credit hours for SURE participation.

Successful applicants are offered campus housing (shared double-occupancy room). If you reside in the Atlanta area, you are still eligible for campus housing. SURE participants may choose to live off-campus.  However, housing award funds are not transferable. If you are chosen to participate and accept to attend our program, you agree to abide by the same Emory College student conduct guidelines that are applicable during the academic year. Violation of these guidelines will result in termination, and referral to other College units for follow-up as warranted.
