Program Overview

SURE Robotics is a ten-week summer research program designed to attract qualified, underrepresented, and minority students into graduate school in the fields of engineering, computer science, or physics.

Program Overview

Students of at least rising junior level undergraduate standing are recruited on a nationwide basis and paired with both a faculty and a graduate student mentor to undertake research projects in robotics.  

Student Support

  • Stipend: Each participant will be receive $5000 for the 10-week program.
  • Dates: SURE–Robotics 2020 program dates are May 28 - August 2, 2021.

  • Housing: Each participant will be housed, free of charge, in dorms on the Georgia Tech campus.
  • Food Allowance: Each participant will receive a food allowance to be used at various campus eateries.
  • Activities: Aside from their own research projects, participants will be provided with a series of seminars, workshops, and field trips (both professional and simply fun) to expose them to the various topics of interest, both at Georgia Tech and in the Atlanta area.
  • Deliverables: At the conclusion of the program, participants will submit a written summary of their research project and orally present it on the last day of the program.


We accept applications from undergraduate students who are majoring in engineering, computer science, or physics. All applicants should be U.S. citizens or permanent residents attending higher education institutions in the U.S. (other than Georgia Tech) or Puerto Rico. We are particularly interested in receiving applications from students majoring in non-research institutions and/or who come from groups that are traditionally underrepresented in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (low income, ethnic and racial minorities, first generation college students, and women).
