The Office of Undergraduate Research is now accepting applications for the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF-UH) program. The SURF-UH program awards $3500 stipends to students interested in conducting a full-time, 10 week summer research project in any field under the mentorship of a UH faculty mentor. The student first secures the research project with the faculty member, and then the student and faculty member apply for the program collaboratively online.
All continuing UH undergraduates, who have not previously participated in the SURF-UH program, with at least a 3.0 gpa are eligible to apply as long as they are not graduating in spring 2010 or summer 2010. The deadline for SURF-UH 2010 is Wednesday, March 24th. Applications are available online at http://uh.edu/honors/undergraduate-research/uh-research/surf/index.php.
Also, save the date for the Provost's Undergraduate Research Scholarship (PURS) program for fall 2010. The deadline is Wednesday, April 21st. All full-time juniors and seniors, who have not previously participated in the PURS program, with at least a 3.0 gpa are eligible to apply for this part-time semester research opportunity. For more information, visit the PURS website at http://uh.edu/honors/undergraduate-research/uh-research/purs/index.php.
