Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF)
The School of Engineering along with the Vice-Provost of Undergraduate Education (VPUE) aims to increase opportunities for undergraduate students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. SURF is designed for Stanford undergraduates and undergraduates from other U.S. institutions. SURF interns receive a stipend for 10 weeks during the summer to work with a faculty mentor and other students to produce an identifiable research result.
SURF interns reside on campus. It is often up to the undergraduate student to identify and initiate contact with faculty with similar research interests for research opportunities. A helpful guide for starting research can be found on the program website.
