SUNY Upstate Medical University/ SUNY ESF Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship Program (SURF)

The State University of New York Upstate Medical University in collaboration with SUNY ESF is offering fellowships for its 2018 Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Program.

The aim of the SURF program is to nurture undergraduate students into careers that combine biomedical research into their chosen profession, providing them an understanding of research across disciplines and fields.

In an intensive ten week summer program, undergraduates with appropriate faculty guidance will formulate their own proposal, carry out research under the supervision of one of our faculty, write a research paper and have the potential to see their work published. In the process, students will attend research seminars, present and participate in a student journal club, present their work, and participate in discussions on careers in research and how to apply to graduate, medical, nursing or other health professions schools. Students are given ample opportunities to interact directly with many of our faculty and students. This is a
newly enlarged program that will offer students the opportunity to perform
research from a wide variety of perspectives (basic science, medicine, nursing, environmental health, and physical therapy).

The program runs from Monday, June 4, 2018 through Friday, August 10, 2018.

Each fellow will be provided a $3,500 stipend for the period plus housing.

Applicants to the program should be undergraduate students in good academic standing, who will be between their junior and senior years during the summer of 2017. Applicants must have a strong interest in pursuing post undergraduate studies in fields offered at SUNY Upstate or SUNY ESF.
