Students interested in the NIST Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) in Gaithersburg, MD and Denver, CO Labs should sign up for one of these webinars:

December 19, 2018 at 1:30 PM-2:30 PM (ET)

January 10, 2019 at 12:00 PM-1:00 PM (ET)

Program description: Over the course of 11 weeks, SURF students contribute to the ongoing research of one of the six NIST facilities which are the Communications Technology Laboratory (CTL), Engineering Laboratory (EL), Information Technology Laboratory (ITL), Material Measurement Laboratory (MML), NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR), and Physical Measurement Laboratory (PML) (which now includes project in the Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology). The SURF Program is administered at the Boulder, CO and Gaithersburg, MD locations. SURF students receive stipend, and housing and travel allotments (as needed). The NIST (SURF) program is for students majoring in science, mathematics and engineering.

Eligibility: The program is open to United States citizens or permanent residents. Students must be undergraduates at a U.S. university or college with a scientific major, have a G.P.A. of 3.0/4.0, and are considering pursuing a graduate degree (M.S. or Ph.D.). Students with physics, material science, chemistry, applied mathematics, computer science, or engineering majors are always encouraged to apply. There may be research opportunities for students with other majors.

2019 Application Process–NEW: The application process has changed for summer 2019. Students can now apply to the 2019 program  without the assistance of their universities. Check back later for the link to  the posting on USAJOBS (tentatively scheduled to open on December 15, 2018 ).
