Caltech SURF (Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships) program is one of the best courses. Since years, SURF scholars have had the chance to carry out research under the supervision of experienced mentors working at the frontiers of their fields. Students familiarize with the process of research as an imaginative intellectual action from commencement (defining and developing a project) to end (presenting their results at SURF Seminar Day).

  2. Candidate write research summary for their projects
  3. Staff member review the proposals and suggest awards
