The Pacific Islands Climate Adaptation Science Center (PI-CASC) announces its 2023 Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship which is open for applications until 1 p.m. Feb. 25 Guam time.

The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) provides promising undergraduates the opportunity to gain valuable research experience, improve their skills in climate science, and expand their knowledge of environmental issues in Hawai’i and Guam. They will be working with a faculty mentor on a climate-related research project that aligns with the center’s objectives. 

The fellowship is open to any undergraduate currently enrolled at any of the University of Hawaii system campuses or at the University of Guam, or currently enrolled at another accredited four-year institution but attended a high school in Hawaiʻi or Guam. 

Faculty members are also encouraged to apply for an opportunity to be a mentor. 

Faculty researchers interested in mentoring a SURF student should write a short description – 300 words – detailing an available project, its specific connections to climate adaptation science, and the specific component of the project that the student will be working on.

Faculty applicants for mentorship can submit to Dr. Rachel Lentz at by 5 p.m.  February 24, 2023.

 The fellowship runs for 10 weeks, starts on June 5, 2023, and offers a $6,000 stipend. 

A virtual information session will be held on Feb. 3 at 2 p.m. HST / Feb. 4 at 10 a.m. CHST that requires at registration at:
