Deadline – OUR Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship

February 1

The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) program is one of many programs administered through OUR and designed to enhance the educational experience of undergraduates by engaging them in research opportunities. We expect to make about 60 individual awards each summer.

SURF recipients are expected to engage in undergraduate research, scholarship, or performance for at least 9 weeks, with a minimum of 20 hours/week during the summer, although depending on scope, some projects may require more than the minimum of 20 hours/week.

SURF projects must be carried out under the supervision of a UNC-Chapel Hill faculty research advisor. Additional collaboration with a postdoctoral fellow or graduate student mentor is encouraged. The typical SURF award is $3,000. Selected students will receive $2,000 at the start of the summer, and the remainder of the award ($1,000) after the required materials have submitted and approved by OUR. Students in certain program areas are eligible to receive additional funding.

The deadline for receipt of all SURF application materials, including letters of recommendation, is February 1 by 4:00pm EDT.
