The National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) – Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) is soliciting applications from eligible colleges and universities located in the U.S. and its territories, nominating undergraduate students to participate in the NIST – SURF Gaithersburg or Boulder Programs. The programs will provide research opportunities for undergraduate students to work with internationally known NIST scientists, to expose them to cutting-edge research, and to promote the pursuit of graduate degrees in science and engineering.
Applications consist of two parts: (1) The student’s university must submit a grant proposal that provides details about its academic program and must nominate one or more students; (2) Students must provide copies of their transcripts, two letters of recommendation, and a letter of intent or personal statement.
The University Honors College (UHC) will take the lead in submitting proposals from Oregon State University (OSU). Please contact Kevin Stoller (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in applying to the NIST – SURF Gaithersburg or Boulder programs.
