Rockefeller University's Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship

The Rockefeller University's Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) program is designed to provide qualified, highly motivated college students majoring in the life or physical sciences, an opportunity to experience laboratory research. Each year, outstanding college sophomores and juniors are chosen from a large pool of applicants.


SURF students are matched according to their stated field of interest with faculty, postdoctoral researchers or graduate students. These mentors volunteer to help design and supervise individualized summer projects for their students. The fifteen students accepted into the SURF program will receive a stipend of $3,000.00 for the 10-week period. Free housing will be provided for students who cannot commute.

Applicants to the SURF Program must submit:
  • The completed on-line application form.
  • A two-page summary statement describing the applicant's academic background, scientific interests, research experience (if any) and career goals. Applicants should discuss how they would benefit from the SURF Program.
  •  An official transcript (sealed by the university registrar).
  • Two letters of recommendation preferably from professors or mentors who can evaluate the applicant based on performance in current or completed research projects. (These letters are critical for our selection process). Letters of recommendation should be submitted online. If letters of recommendation are not submitted online, they must be mailed in separate sealed envelopes, signed across the seal, to the address below.
