Congratulations to WVU's Participants for "Virtual" SURE

West Virginia University’s Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) is pleased to announce the participants in the 2020 “Virtual” SURE experience to be held from May 26-July 24, 2020. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the entire SURE experience, including 8-weeks of full-time research and the 1-credit coordinating research class, will be 100% online.  The SURE program is very appreciative of our WVU faculty members who agreed to continue to support undergraduates in virtual research this summer.
