|Description:||SURF is a 10 week research experience that supports undergraduate students for the summer at Boston University. Participants from institutions across the country are paired with BU faculty members who will serve as their research mentors. Students receive a stipend, research supplies allowance, a travel subsidy, and housing in a BU apartment during the program. As part of the program, participants also attend a series of summer enrichment workshops whose topics range from laboratory safety to research ethics to scientific writing. At the conclusion, SURFers are asked to present a 10-15 minute talk about their research to an audience consisting of their peers, other students, faculty, staff, and invited guests.
SURF is offered to promote access to graduate education to talented undergraduate students, especially among underrepresented minorities. These fellowships provide research projects supervised by Boston University faculty in engineering, math, computer science, and in the biological, physical, and social sciences.
