Eligibility

Lab workers

Acceptance into the SURF Program is awarded on a competitive basis to college students who are United States citizens or permanent residents, or international students who are enrolled in a US college, with a minimum grade point average of 3.2. International students studying abroad are not eligible. For more information on work authorization options for international students, click here.

A special emphasis is placed on identifying and recruiting students who are historically underrepresented in the sciences (i.e., African-American, Hispanic, Native Pacific Islander, or Native American students or first to college students).

Representatives from Scripps will attend several conferences and visit universities.  Click here to see the full list.
