Student Research at UNH

Opportunities for students to engage in research, service learning, and international studies abound.  Below are a few links to get you started on your discovery.

Student research is an important component of the UNH experiential education experience.

SURF - Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships

The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) program enables students to conduct in-depth, hands-on research, working in collaboration with a faculty mentor. Since the inception of the program in 2007, more than 130 students have been selected to participate. Students selected for SURF will submit a research proposal, conduct their research over the summer, submit a final paper and present their findings at a campus research symposium.

 

Office of Student Fellowships and Research

Prestigious grants and fellowships include a wide range of external financial awards for outstanding students.  Such awards may be used for study abroad, graduate school, independent research, public service, internships, or teaching experiences in the U.S. or abroad. These awards may be funded by government grants or private foundations, and are generally quite competitive, although the profile of an ideal candidate varies depending on the award.  Some are more narrow and specialized within a disciplinary area, and others are much more holistic, seeking well-rounded individuals who can demonstrate talents and experiences well beyond college transcripts and letters of reference.

Visit the web page for  information about the types of grants and fellowships that are available to UNH students, suggested strategies for competitive applicants, and details needed to begin the application process.
