SUPER Student Application

Interested in becoming a SUPER student?

Whether you want research experience to be more qualified to enter the workforce, or you plan to apply to graduate school, research experience is extremely valuable! It demonstrates an ability to carry out a research plan from start to finish, to work with a mentor, and to communicate your results to a diverse audience. Take this opportunity to work with a mentor to build your research skills, and to gain depth in an area of study!

For the 2021-2022 academic year, students will be required to complete an application online and will be selected to participate in the program based on eligibility and readiness for in-depth research participation.  Please take some time to read through the application guidelines below to prepare your application:

    • The application period for the 2021-2022 academic year will be open April 5 to April 30, 2021.  You may complete the online application at any time during this window.
    • Please read the application questions here and draft your responses in advance of opening the application.
    • Preference will be given to Ecosystem Science & Sustainability and Watershed Science majors, but any student at CSU is eligible to apply and participate.
