SURF

Summer Undergraduate Research at Florida

The SURF program provides a 10 week Summer Undergraduate Research experience at the University of Florida. SURF provides the opportunity to work with a premier faculty adviser and a senior Ph.D. student mentor. Students engage in research and spend in depth time furthering their academic path and exploring new intellectual horizons. All participants will receive preferred Ph.D. admission and fellowship offers provided they have a successful summer experience and maintain their level of high academic performance through the completion of their bachelor’s degree. All costs for SURF participants are paid by UF including room and some board, a $5,000 summer stipend, round-trip flights/mileage to Gainesville, summer workshops, social events/activities and a GRE test prep course.
