Yale Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF)

http://www.yale.edu/graduateschool/diversity/forms/surf.pdf

Each summer the Yale SURF Program brings a group of qualified undergraduates to Yale for eight weeks. The experience is meant to familiarize students with the kind of work they can expect to do in graduate school, provide them with insight into the many steps involved in building a career based on Ph.D. level training, as well as foster a sense of confidence regarding their own abilities and potential. Students are immersed in an academic, professional setting involving a working relationship with a faculty mentor, a program of individual research, and participation in a series of program workshops and panel discussions.

Host Institution(s)

Yale University (New Haven, CT)

Citizenship Requirements

Participation in the summer program is restricted to US citizens and permanent residents.

Eligibility

The SURF Program is intended for students with a strong desire to pursue research careers at the Ph.D. level. The program is particularly interested in identifying and providing research experience to talented underrepresented minority students. Preference is given to students completing their sophomore or junior years. However, other students who express persuasive plans for research may be considered.
