Summer STEM Opportunities at NIST

Designed for middle-school science teachers and undergraduates

Published: Thursday, January 8, 2015 - 17:56

(NIST: Gaithersburg, MD) -- NIST is soliciting applications from eligible public school districts and accredited private educational institutions in the United States and its territories, nominating middle school science teachers to participate in the 2015 NIST Summer Institute Program. The two-week workshop will provide selected middle school teachers hands-on activities, lectures, tours, and visits with NIST scientists and engineers at the NIST campus in Gaithersburg, MD. More information on the NIST Middle School Teachers Program is available here. The Federal Funding Opportunity (FFO) Notice is posted here. The deadline for submitting applications is March 13, 2015.

In a separate program, undergraduates and their colleges or universities are invited to apply to participate in NIST’s 2015 Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Program for students majoring in science, mathematics, and engineering. Applications for participation in the SURF program are only accepted from colleges or universities, and not from individual students. NIST anticipates providing meaningful research opportunities for approximately 130 students at their Gaithersburg, MD campus. The NIST site in Boulder, CO, also operates a SURF program with a distinctly separate application. The SURF Programs are expected to run from May 26–August 9, 2015 or June 8–August 9, 2015 at the Gaithersburg campus; and from May 18–July 31, 2015 at the Boulder campus. Adjustments may be made to accommodate specific academic schedules. The FFO Notice for both programs is posted here. The deadline for application submissions is February 13, 2015.
