Kavli Nanoscience Institute CalTech SURF-the-WAVE Fellowships 2020 for Undergraduates

Deadline: January 12, 2020 (WAVE Fellowship) / February 22, 2020 (SURF Fellowship)

Applications are open for the Kavli Nanoscience Institute CalTech SURF-the-WAVE Fellowships Program 2020. The Kavli Nanoscience Institute at the California Institute of Technology established the SURF-the-WAVE Fellowships Program to offer opportunities for motivated undergraduates interested in carrying out a summer research project in nanoscience.

Working in conjunction with Caltech’s Student-Faculty Program office and its summer undergraduate research fellowships programs, KNI SURF-the-WAVE Fellowships are designed for non-Caltech undergraduates who plan to pursue a PhD in science or engineering. The KNI is an active supporter of diversity and inclusion on campus; students from underrepresented backgrounds in the sciences are encouraged to apply.

Successful candidates will develop and conduct a research project and work alongside Caltech faculty, staff, graduate student researchers and/or postdoctoral scholars throughout the 10-week period. During the course of the summer, SURF-the-WAVE prize fellows will participate in activities within the KNI community as well as other events sponsored by Caltech’s SURF and WAVE programs office.


  • This prize fellowship covers the SURF or WAVE full salary, as well as up to $2,000 to defray housing expenses.


  • Open to non-Caltech undergraduates.
  • Research projects must be related to nanoscience and can be experimental or theoretical.
