SURF deadline extended: The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship program (SURF), presented by CBEE and CCE, will award 15 to 20 fellowships of $4,500 for undergraduate students to support hands-on research in the areas of community resilience, clean water engineering, and infrastructure renewal. During the eight-week program, June 18 to Aug. 24, students will work with a faculty mentor and graduate student on a specific project and will develop research skills to increase graduate school opportunities. The revised deadline to apply is Friday, Feb. 23. View current research topics, eligibility, application information, and past projects at cbee.oregonstate.edu/surf

Humanitarian Engineering info session: Students from any major are invited to travel to Guatemala for 10 days in September to learn about the household energy poverty facing 40 percent of the world’s families and the technologies and policies that can help to address it. Please join the Humanitarian Engineering program for an info session on HEST 242/542: “Household Energy in Guatemala,” a 3-credit field course. Further details about the info session and previous course projects are available online. (Send questions to Nordica MacCarty, assistant professor of mechanical engineering: nordica.maccarty@oregonstate.edu.) Monday, Feb. 26, at 5:15 p.m. in 400 Waldo Hall.

Summer work opportunity: Precollege Programs is currently recruiting to fill 12 positions for Mobile Invention summer camp instructors. Mobile Invention camps engage middle school students from rural communities throughout Oregon in a fun, hands-on, invention-based curriculum. Mobile Invention summer camp instructors will lead teams of middle school students through these regional day camps. Instructors are responsible for attending training during the spring term (OSU credits available), and running the camps throughout the summer.
