Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship - University of Houston
Skip to main content

The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship program at the University of Houston (SURF–UH) seeks to provide funding for rising UH sophomores, juniors, and seniors to participate in a focused, full-time, 10-week research experience (May 30 – Aug. 4, 2023) under the direction of UH faculty. Current freshmen who will be sophomores in fall 2023 are eligible to apply for the fellowship. However, students graduating in spring and summer 2023 are not eligible for this program. No course credit will be offered for participation in this program, and students who have previously participated in the SURF–UH program are ineligible to reapply. This fellowship is open to students of all disciplines. All full-time UH faculty members are eligible to participate as faculty sponsors. (This precludes adjunct faculty.) Faculty may nominate up to two students for a SURF. Please note that faculty mentors may request up to $300 of reimbursement for expenses related to the SURF project but must submit this request by June 16, 2023. The deadline to submit a faculty-mentor letter of recommendation is March 17th, 2023.

The SURF 2023 application will open in January.
The application will be due Friday, March 10 at 11:59pm.
