    This program offers several ways for undergraduates to contribute to a community of research, scholarship and creative performance at UNC-Chapel Hill. Participants will be invited to receive appropriate training and serve as peer advisors. Participants will also be invited to register for the OUR Speaker’s Bureau and talk about their experiences during Sophomore Reorientation and other campus venues. Students meeting CRSP requirements will receive the designation “Carolina Research Scholar” on their transcripts. To learn more about the program, including instructions on how to register, please visit the CRSP page on this website.
  2. SURF reception
    We are planning a reception in your honor early in the Fall. We hope you will enjoy meeting other SURF recipients as well as faculty, administrators, and some of the donors who are essential to the program. We will be sending more details and the invitation by email after classes start.
