How To Apply

The Online Application is planned to be open November 16, 2022. There are revisions being made to the application process and this date may be delayed due to an evolving timeline. We will continue to post updates here. Currently, the 2023 SURF program is being planned as an onsite program according to schedule. Due to the ongoing circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic the ability to have an onsite program may change at any time. Thus, please be aware that depending on the circumstances, it may be necessary to shift the 2023 SURF program from onsite to voluntary online programming.
