The SURF Program is possible only with the generous contributions of the following sponsors. They have been critical to the success of the entire SURF program, not only Moscow and Stanford conference, but also the SURF delegates’ Collaborative Research Projects.

Our sponsors have contributed financially, but they have also done far more, helping us to plan, publicize, and recruit. This program could not have been put on without their help and they deserve much of the credit. We extend our deepest thanks to the following sponsors.
