Summer Research Fellowship (SuRF)

Description of Program

*The 2020 SuRF program was cancelled (COVID-19). We anticipate the program will resume in 2021. Look for project updates in early January!

The Congdon School of Health Sciences – Summer Research Fellowship (CSHS-SuRF) is a highly competitive program that pairs undergraduate researchers with faculty in the Congdon School of Health Sciences to perform summer research. Fellows receive free campus housing for program duration and a summer stipend. This student-centered research program focuses on the development of critical research skills in students who are preparing for future graduate studies, professional positions, and/or other areas of collaboration within the health sciences. Please recognize that participation in SuRF means more than just spending the summer with a faculty mentor and completing research. It means becoming part of the community of scholars and learning how to communicate one’s work to a broader audience.

About the Program: Since its inception in 2013, the CSHS-SuRF program has provided undergraduates with the opportunity to participate in summer research. As a result of their mentored research experiences, these students have gone on to represent High Point University by giving peer-reviewed academic research presentations at national/international conferences and peer-reviewed academic research presentations at regional, state, and local venues. These students have also contributed as co-authors on manuscripts that have been published in esteemed peer reviewed journals.

The High Point Admissions Office is Located in Wrenn Hall.

Tours are available 7 days a week. Please contact us to schedule your visit.
