The Mayo Clinic is now accepting applications for its Summer Undergraduate
Research Fellowship (SURF) program. This program is for students who see
themselves as research scientists of the future. It is particularly suited
for those who want to do research that has the ultimate goal of improving
medical treatments. Each year, 70-80 undergraduates from around the U.S.
come to Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, to work with investigators on a
broad array of biomedical research questions. Approximately ten fellowships
are also available at Mayo's sites in Scottsdale, Arizona and Jacksonville,
Florida. Mayo's SURF program provides more than just work experience in a
lab. As a SURF fellow you will:
* Conduct a small research project of work on part of an ongoing
research investigation for 10 weeks
* Develop technical, analytical and communication skills
* Participate in a weekly seminar series that introduces rapidly
progressing research areas
* Acquire in-depth knowledge related to a scientific field
* Receive advising on applying to PhD, MD and MD/PhD programs.
A stipend of $4,000 for 10 weeks is provided. From this stipend, students
are responsible for their own travel, housing and meals. Most students live
together in convenient summer student apartments which cost about $75/week.
