The Cullen College of Engineering is proud to announce that 21 undergraduate students have been selected for the University of Houston's Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF), according to the Honors College.

The program provides funding for rising UH sophomores, juniors and seniors to participate in a focused, full-time, 10-week research experience from June through August under the direction of a faculty member. SURF is only open to undergraduates, and students who previously participated in SURF are not allowed to apply again, as the focus is on providing opportunities for first-time research.

SURF provides a $4,000 scholarship to participating students. Participating students also attend the weekly Brown Bag Lecture series, and present a research poster at Undergraduate Research Day, currently scheduled for April 2022.
