Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships (SURF)
The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) program provides a unique and opportunity for undergraduate students to spend the summer working on a research or scholarly project or creative activity with the support of a faculty or staff mentor. Students submit proposals and successful applicants receive a stipend to support them while they complete their project during a 1o week period In the summer. Awards range from $1,750 to $3,500, depending on the size of the project. Mentors also receive a stipend to provide guidance and support to the student over the summer. The SURF program is supported by the UW-Superior Foundation.
