Resources for SURF Fellows

Below are some links to Amherst resources and contacts that may be helpful in completing a successful SURF Fellowship

A research internship toolkit, is available through the Amherst Women in Science (AWIS) student club website. It includes answers to questions students entering the internship might have, like what to do if you make a mistake, how to interact with the community, and how to perform a task you are shown once. The Toolkit also contains the list of students who agreed to share their internship experiences, as well as a short selection of alumni in various major cities. 

Reach out to The Writing Center for support as you write your SURF application, design a research poster or slides, and as you prepare to present your research to others. About Us.

The Moss Quantitative Center (located in the Science Center Library) offers tutoring for students who want to improve their conceptual understanding in math, science and economics and  problem-solving skills.

Staff at the Science Library are available to answer questions and assist with science research questions. Contact Stepanie Capsuto

Workshops to assist with learning software programs and technology needed for research are organized by Andy Anderson, Amherst's Academic Technology Specialist.
