The Savannah River Ecology Laboratory at Savannah River Site was named as University of Georgia’s top undergraduate mentoring program for 2011.

The research facility in Aiken county  received the CURO (Center for Undergraduate Research Opportunities) Excellence in Undergraduate Research Mentoring Award in April.

The CURO award annually recognizes "departments and programs that evidence an ongoing commitment to involving undergraduates in research and fostering the enrichment of the undergraduate learning experience at the University of Georgia.”

The SREL undergraduate program began in the late 1960s. It immerses students in all aspects of scientific research, including research design, ethics, data collection and analysis, and preparation of manuscripts. Many of the over 600 program alumni have gone on to graduate study, careers as faculty at colleges and universities, or positions with federal or state environmental agencies. They have received numerous awards and have co-authored over 170 scientific papers published in peer-reviewed journals.
