How to Apply

Due to health concerns and travel restrictions related to COVID-19, the 2021 SURF Program will not take place in Summer 2021 and we will not be accepting applications. We are disappointed by this decision, but the health and safety of our research trainees  is our first priority. If you have any questions related to the SURF program, please email Jessica Costic at
