Current SURF Projects

Plans for the SURF 2015 program are in the works, and we have many enthusiastic students and Faculty Mentors who have already expressed an interest in participating in the program!  With the guidance of their Faculty Mentors, students will work on research projects in a wide range of areas, including the social sciences, the natural sciences, and arts and humanities. 

Once their research is complete, students will participate in Research Poster Presentation Day, where they will present their findings to other students, faculty, staff and guests of UNH.

Weekly Seminars will be held throughout the summer to provide students with even more opportunities to learn and grow through networking, sharing their experiences, and learning about their colleagues' areas of interest.  Guest speakers will also attend the seminars to discuss their own research and professional accomplishments.  These activities will offer students a unique, educational and professional experience that will help them attain their academic and professional goals in the future.   



You can use this page to stay up to date on the most current information about events, workshops, and deadlines.  See the list below for an overview of what is to come in the near future (exact dates to be determined).

  • Information sessions will be held for any students who are interested in applying to SURF sometime between late January and mid-February, 2015.
  • The SURF Application Deadline will be sometime in mid-March 2015.


Faculty Mentors

Students can take several approaches to finding a Faculty Mentor:

  1. Click on this link to see a list of people who have already expressed an interest in being a Faculty Mentor;
  2. Reach out to faculty members you already know, and ask if they are interested in being your mentor;
  3. Ask faculty, staff and other students to introduce you to someone who may be interested in being a mentor;
  4. If, after trying the above mentioned approaches, you are still having trouble finding a mentor, you can contact Carol Withers, Director of Grants and Sponsored Programs, at to discuss other options.

Students are encouraged to speak to faculty both within and outside of their own College or Department.  Many disciplines are related in some way, and a students may find it interesting to approach a topic from a different and new perspective.
