Online applications open today for the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Program at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC). The SURF Program offers undergraduates the chance to explore clinical, translational, and basic science research in laboratories in the Department of Pediatrics, University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. The primary goal is to provide students with a foundation for making career choices in the biomedical sciences.
In honor of their daughter Olivia, the Erhardt family has worked with the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, the Mariemont School Foundation and community members to establish the Olivia V. Erhardt (LO.V.E) Memorial Fund for Summer Undergraduate Research Fellows. The LO.V.E. Fund will be available to support Mariemont High School current seniors, or prior graduates, who are accepted into the CCHMC SURF program.
The goal of the program is to provide funding for one or more incremental summer undergraduate research fellowship (SURF) positions at CCHMC for eligible Mariemont High School seniors and alumni. Each position requires approximately $5,000 in annual funding for a student stipend and administrative overhead.
