Hanley Sustainability Institute

Sustainability Undergraduate Research Fellowship

A gift from University of Dayton graduate John Alberici led to the creation of the Sustainability Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) program. Alberici, a 1967 graduate, served in the U.S. Army before joining his family's construction company in St. Louis, Mo. He is now the chairman emeritus of Alberici Corporation and Flintco, LLC. 

The fellowship advances two of the Hanley Sustainability Institute’s priorities, enhancing undergrad experiences in sustainability and catalyzing transdisciplinary research and scholarship. 

Through a competitive review process, HSI selects a cohort of outstanding undergraduate students to work on transdisciplinary research projects in sustainability. Each student spends a full academic year (including summer) working on a project guided by one or more faculty members. Students receive a stipend for their summer work and an allowance to offset research expenses.
