Success for Underrepresented Students in Graduate Education (SURGE)
Success for Underrepresented Students in Graduate Education (SURGE) is a graduate mentorship program supporting students from underserved backgrounds, including first-generation college students.
The program formally launched in January 2021 when SURGE trainees were paired with graduate student mentors. They participate in one-on-one mentoring, seminars, training sessions and workshops.
Additionally, SURGE trainees have an opportunity to apply for the AGRADE master's scholarship, which can greatly reduce graduate school tuition.
Due to COVID-19, all activities are virtual at this time.
