You'll hear from Evergreen’s Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) recipients and enjoy an up-close look at their impressive findings. Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships offer a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for students to partner closely with faculty on real-world research and a variety of creative projects from anthropology, archaeology, literary arts, film, human rights, cybersecurity, indigenous studies, organic chemistry, plant biology, urban planning, 18th century literature, and mathematics education and beyond.

These student researchers are eager to share the results of their summer work with you with on-demand lightning talks.
