Boston U | Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) (Boston, MA)

Jan. 11, 2023

The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Program at Boston University is designed to promote access to graduate education for talented undergraduate students, especially those from minority groups, traditionally underrepresented in the sciences – African-American, Hispanic, Native American/Native Alaskan, and Pacific Islander/Native Hawaiian/Polynesian – or persons living with disabilities. The SURF Program is supported by funds from the National Science Foundation (NSF-REU) and Boston University.

The SURF Program is open to non-BU students who are rising juniors or rising seniors, and wish to conduct research in the sciences or technology fields. The program consists of ten weeks of full-time research (early June  – mid-August) in a Boston University lab, mentored by a BU faculty member. For summer 2023, SURF research projects will be in areas related to Biology and the control of gene expression for biological outcomes. On-campus housing, a stipend, weekly enrichment activities, social events, and an October weekend trip to present findings at the Boston University Undergraduate Research Symposium are also included.
