Closely supervised training helps interns develop the professional skills and gain the hands-on experience that advances scientific careers.

Work Study

UC San Diego Work Study

Work study is awarded by the Financial Aid Office at UC San Diego as part of your financial aid package. It allows you to earn money for your educational and other expenses. It does not pay your tuition. To determine if you have an award, review your Award Notification on TritonLink.

What requirements must I meet to participate in the work study programs?

For both of the programs, you must:

  • be a UC San Diego undergraduate student enrolled in a minimum of 6 units;
  • demonstrate satisfactory academic progress in a program leading to a degree, according to federal standards;
  • have been offered and officially accepted a work study award for the current academic year.


Summer Undergraduate Research Fellows (SURF) Program

The SURF Program offers its participants an academic structure that integrates cutting-edge hands-on laboratory research with professional skills development and mentoring. Each of the major program components – curriculum and professional development workshops and research experiences – will be made up of several elements that work together and provide a stepwise approach to improving interns’ critical thinking skills, scientific preparation skills, knowledge base, and research expertise.

Kenan Fellows Undergraduate Internship Program

The Scripps Florida Kenan Fellows Summer Internship for Undergraduates is an intensive 10-week program designed for returning Kenan Fellows who previously participated in the program as a high school student. The program broadly explores chemical reactivity and diversity as tools to probe biochemical structure and function and the connection of molecular and cellular structure with complex organismal phenomena such as aging, metabolism, learning and memory.

High School Students

High School Student Summer Internship Program

The Scripps Florida High School Student Summer Internship Program has been created to expose students to a variety of contemporary issues in basic biomedical research, provide hands-on laboratory experience, and motivate and prepare students for continuing education in the sciences.
