Participants in the SURF program work in an active research laboratory under the guidance of a faculty member with the goal of exposing students to the challenges, excitement and satisfaction of research.
Selection is based on academic records and the appropriateness of the applicant’s scientific interests. Students about to begin their senior year of college studies are preferred, but promising juniors and recent graduates will be considered.
Participants are provided with room, board, a modest living allowance and up to $350 travel reimbursement. In addition, those program participants who meet minimum requirements for admission to the Heritage College, including having taken the MCAT, will be offered an opportunity to interview during the summer for a place in the entering class of 2021.
