2023 Summer Undergraduate Research Fellows in Chemistry
Leadership Alliance SR-EIP
Monday, June 5, 2023 – Friday, August 4, 2023
The Department of Chemistry at Princeton University is pleased to offer the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellows in Chemistry to students from other colleges and universities through the Leadership Alliance Summer Research Early Identification Program. (SURF-C/SR-EIP). This selective program provides unique laboratory experiences for qualified undergraduates, placing each student into research groups directed by our well-respected Faculty. For eight weeks the undergraduate summer researcher becomes part of the group, working side-by-side with post-docs, graduate students, and other undergraduates. Each student has the opportunity to play a part in cutting-edge research and be a contributing member of the research team.
In addition to the valuable laboratory experience, each summer student participates in research discussion groups and safety training, and has the opportunity to participate in social activities with SURP students from other programs, summer field trips, including an industrial chemistry laboratory tour, and an end of summer research poster session.
Students receive a stipend, housing on the Princeton University campus, and reimbursement for travel expenses within budgetary limits.
- Be currently enrolled full-time in an accredited public or private college or university in the United States or its territories, as recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
- Be in good academic standing with a GPA of 3.0 or better.
- Demonstrate a committed interest to pursue graduate study toward a PhD or MD-PhD.
- Have completed at least two semesters and have at least one semester remaining of their undergraduate education by the start of the summer program.

Note: SURF-C/SR-EIP is not designed for students pursuing professional training for careers in the practice of law, business administration, clinical medicine, clinical psychology or the allied health professions.
