Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Program

The SURF program is designed to support promising undergraduate students so they can conduct meaningful research in plant biology during the early part of their college careers. Ideally, students will conduct SURF-funded research the summer following their second year of undergraduate study. Exceptionally well-prepared first- and third-year students who provide evidence of a strong commitment to plant biology will also be considered.

Deadline for receipt of applications: February 15, 2014
