The application to apply for the President's Undergraduate Research Award for Fall is May 15! Get paid $1500 to conduct undergraduate research. Apply here.


Deadline: May 13 2015 by 11:59 PM

The Pre-Teaching Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (PT-SURE) is a paid research experience in a Georgia Tech laboratory for undergraduate students interested in pursuing a career in secondary (grades 6-12) education. Participants will also have the opportunity to broaden their understanding of laboratory research and research methods. The program is in conjunction with the Center for Education Integrating Science, Mathematics, and Computing (CEISMC) and the Georgia Intern Fellowships for Teachers (GIFT) program that brings middle and high school Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) teachers together with researchers and graduate students in Georgia Tech laboratories. The goal of the GIFT program is to provide teachers summer STEM internships in university research laboratories and industry workplaces so that they can develop curriculum and lesson plans for the school year that integrate real world applications. PT-SURE students become an integral part of this development process over the course of the summer. Participants may also have the opportunity to work with high school students participating in the Research, Experiment, Analyze, and Learn (R.E.A.L.) component of the GIFT program in the same lab.*
*PT-SURE participants will not be teaching or learning to teach high school or middle school students but will instead be actively engaged in working with teachers and possible student teams to develop curriculum and lesson plans based upon the research carried out over the summer.
Application and more information

In just a few weeks, thousands of students will see years of hard work, discipline, and commitment pay off when they receive their diplomas. If you’re one of those lucky students, you can take away some great services along with that diploma in your new life as a Georgia Tech alumnus.

Once you leave, the services provided by the Office of Information Technology change, but not everything goes away. You will always be a Yellow Jacket, but you’ll be a former student when you have not registered for two consecutive terms. After that time, some online resources will no longer be available to you.

Click here for an overview of what you keep, what you lose, and what new services you may use after graduation.
