2013 Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships (Apply by Feb. 22)

Short Description:

Caltech’s Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships, or SURF, project introduces undergraduate students to research under the guidance of seasoned mentors at Caltech or NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). Students experience the process of research as a creative intellectual activity and gain a more realistic view of the opportunities and demands of a professional research career.

SURF is modeled on the grant-seeking process. Students collaborate with potential mentors to define and develop a project and to write research proposals. Caltech faculty or JPL staff review the proposals and recommend awards. Students work over a 10-week period in the summer. At the conclusion of the project, each student will submit a technical paper and give a SURF Seminar Day oral presentation.(Apply by Feb. 22)
