Undergraduates

National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduates (NSF REU) Site in Cell and Molecular Biology at Sanford Research and Augustana College
The NSF REU Site at Sanford Research and Augustana College provides an opportunity for undergraduates to participate in laboratory research and career preparation workshops. This 10-week summer program was developed in partnership with Augustana College and enables students to obtain research experience in a Sanford Research or Augustana College lab to prepare them for a career in the cell and molecular biology.

Sanford Program for Undergraduate Research (SPUR)
The Sanford Program for Undergraduate Research provides an opportunity for undergraduates to participate in laboratory research. Like the REU program, SPUR is a 10-week summer program that was developed in partnership with Augustana College and enables students to obtain research experience in a Sanford Research or Augustana College lab to prepare them for a career in the biomedical sciences.

Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE)
The Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) is a unique opportunity for American Indian undergraduate students to participate in research. Developed by the University of South Dakota and Sanford Research, this cross-disciplinary program provides hands-on training and mentoring in the fields of biomedical and behavioral research.

Research Shadowing Program
The Research Shadowing Program is an observational program allowing college students and high school students sixteen years of age or older to shadow a scientist during part of their routine day in one of our research labs. After shadowing within our research environment, students should develop an appreciation for some of the qualities required for a career as a research scientist.
