Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships (SURF) awarded by the ACS Division of Organic Chemistry provide funding for summer research opportunities for outstanding undergraduate organic chemistry students attending colleges and universities in the United States.
These competitive fellowships ($5,000) are awarded on the merits of students’ research proposals, academic records, faculty recommendations and their passion for laboratory science. SURF fellowships will provide support for undergraduates in organic chemistry to carry out research at their respective colleges/universities in the summer between their junior and senior year. In addition, the program will provide financial support to enable recipients to visit an industrial campus in the fall for a dinner, award session, scientific talks, a tour of the campus and a poster session, where the results of the summer research investigations would be presented.
Application Deadline: February 18, 2022
