The National Institute of Standards and Technology, Gaithersburg is offering Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship.
Fellowships are open to students majoring in science, mathematics and engineering.
It is important to note that applications for participation in the SURF program are only accepted from colleges or universities, and not from individual students.
Students can participate in any one of the seven NIST laboratories:

  • Material Measurement Laboratory
  • Physical Measurement Laboratory
  • Communications Technology Laboratory
  • Engineering Laboratory
  • Information Technology Laboratory
  • Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology
  • NIST Center for Neutron Research

The student application form should indicate in which laboratory he/she is most interested. The applications will be considered by the student’s first choice, then second choice and finally by all programs, with consideration of the student’s preferences and research interests. Please circulate the information about this program to other appropriate academic departments and administrative staff at your institution.

The SURF Program is anticipated to run between May 26 ? August 9, 2015 or June 8 ? August 9, 2015; adjustments may be made to accommodate specific academic schedules (e.g., a limited number of 9-week slots).
