Illinois pre-selection for 2021 Mayo Clinic SURF | Apply by Nov. 8

The Illinois pre-selection period is now open for Mayo Clinic’s Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF), a 10-week program that invites students to work alongside Mayo Clinic researchers on cutting-edge biomedical research. This special pre-selection process allows for University of Illinois students to submit their SURF application to a selection committee of Illinois faculty and staff. Up to seven of Mayo Clinic’s prestigious fellowships are reserved for Illinois sophomores and juniors who are seriously considering a biomedical research career as a PhD or MD-PhD. The Mayo Clinic & Illinois Alliance will host virtual office hours on Oct. 13 and 14 for applicants  to ask questions and speak individually with a program administrator. The deadline to apply is Nov. 8. Learn more
