The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships (SURF) program is one of the “crown jewels” of Caltech. For over 35 years, SURF students have had the opportunity to conduct research under the guidance of experienced mentors working at the frontiers of their fields. Students experience the process of research as a creative intellectual activity from beginning (defining and developing a project) to end (presenting their results at SURF Seminar Day).

Students--be sure to check out the links above for an in-depth program descrition; eligibility requirements; and application information.
