The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship/L&S program (SURF/L&S) is designed to allow undergraduates enrolled at UC Berkeley in the College of Letters and Science to spend the summer doing concentrated research in preparation for a senior thesis or another major capstone research project. In summer 2014, fellows will receive a $3,750 summer stipend which is intended to cover basic living expenses for two months. SURF Fellows receive an additional $500 when they complete projects and graduate as scheduled. Students with need-based financial aid may be eligible for additional funds. For the summer of 2014, we anticipate funding about forty students.
SURF/Rose Hills, beginning in summer 2012, allows students enrolled at UC Berkeley in certain mathematics, science, and engineering majors¬†in the colleges of L&S, Natural Resources, Engineering, and Chemistry to immerse themselves in full-time research over the summer. Thanks to the generous support of The Rose Hills Foundation, we will offer fellowships for $6,000: $5,000 to be disbursed directly to the student, and $1,000 for supplies, to be disbursed to the laboratory.
