» Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Program

SURF is a competitive 8-week summer program that offers Chapman University undergraduate students experience in hands-on research and creative scholarship mentored by expert faculty. SURF fellows can participate in a faculty’s ongoing research/creative program with a clear individual role or craft a unique project in their area of interest. SURF is a paid, on-campus summer fellowship with a faculty member that includes monetary support and on-campus housing. 

At the end of the program, students will present their research or creative project at the Summer Research Conference.

Students from across all disciplines are encouraged to apply.
