UConn's Office of Undergraduate Research sponsors Summer Undergraduate Research Fund (SURF) Awards for undergraduate students that submit proposals for interesting research or creative projects.

Proposals are reviewed by a faculty committee and are selected via a competitive process. Students who receive a SURF Award are given a stipend to support their project. SURF Awardees then have the opportunity to present their findings at a semesterly Frontiers in Undergraduate Research poster session.

Students are encouraged to consult the Office of Undergraduate Research for more application information.
