Supervise a Calit2-funded Student

Calit2 provides support for students and their faculty mentors. 

During winter quarter, a call for research projects is sent to UCI faculty and their departments, encouranging them to submit a research project that would be mutually beneficial for a UCI undergraduate student to engage in. The summer undergraduate program, SURF-IT, has become a popular way for faculty to get more involved in Calit2 and often results in the student staying with the project team to futher the research. The project does not have to reside in the Calit2 Building, but those projects that fall under the institute's research thrusts and offer an interdisciplinary team environment are favored. 

Faculty with graduate research student teams may consider applying for work space in the building. Additionally, funding is periodically available to support graduate students with faculty leads on key Calit2 research projects.
