NIST Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship Program-Boulder

Project: Research project

Description

The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Program is designed to inspire undergraduate students to pursue careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) through a unique research experience that supports the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) mission. SURF students from across the country have the opportunity to gain valuable, hands-on experience, working with cutting edge technology at NIST. Over the course of 11 weeks, SURF students contribute to the ongoing research of one of six NIST laboratories - Physical Measurement Laboratory (PML), Material Measurement Laboratory (MML), Engineering Laboratory (EL), and Information Technology (ITL), Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology (CNST), and NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR). The SURF Program is administered at the Boulder, CO, and Gaithersburg, MD, locations.
