The Seahawk Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) is an 8-week program (Mon May 10- Fri July 2) in which students engage in research or creative activity, as mentored by a faculty member. SURF is open to students in any year and in any discipline who will have completed coursework necessary to prepare them for their project. Students in the program must work full-time on their project and attend weekly group meetings, during which they will report on their progress, discuss the scholarship of their discipline, learn about their peers’ work, and participate in professional development workshops. Students present their work at the SURF Symposium at the conclusion of the program, and potentially to the wider community during the following academic year.

For the 2021 SURF Program, we will host a socially-distanced, residential cohort; students may opt to participate virtually.  Mentors will meet with SURF fellows virtually this year. 

Students selected for SURF are awarded a $3250 stipend, on-campus housing, and a meal plan.

Information on the application process may be found on the SURF website.  We also encourage students to join us on Monday, March 1st from 4:45-5:45  for an informational meeting.   pw 364242


The SURF application is due by 5:00pm on March 19th.
