Apply for SURIM!

The SURIM 2021 application is now closed! Please check back soon to apply for SURIM 2022!

The application requires a résumé or a CV, a copy of your unofficial Stanford transcript, and at least two letters of reccomendations.

The application due date will be published soon. As in previous years, it will be due at the end of February/start of March. 


Below are the criteria you must meet in order to qualify for SURIM:

  • Availability and Time Commitment: SURIM is a full-time opportunity. Full-time means devoting 35+ hours/week for 10 consecutive weeks, i.e., it is the student's primary activity that quarter.
  • Students with a full time grant through a Departmental or Faculty Grant cannot receive an additional VPUE part-time grant within the same quarter.
  • Full-time VPUE Faculty/Department Grant student recipients are not permitted to engage in another full-time internship, job, or volunteer opportunity (whether funded by Stanford or otherwise), unless their faculty mentors or program mentors have approved these arrangements.
    • As a reminder, VPUE grant recipients who are planning on concurrently participating in another Stanford program should also abide by the funding and program policies of the sponsoring unit.


Full-time stipends will be $7,500 + up to $1,500 need-based supplement (if student qualifies).
