The University of Cincinnati and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center offer several Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Programs for biomedical research every year. In these programs, about 150 undergraduate student participants receive direct mentoring and valuable research experience for 8-10 weeks over the summer. These programs are designed to help prepare undergraduate students for careers in biomedical research. Several programs are available, and students may request to work in any active research lab at UC or CCHMC. Stipend amounts vary between programs.
