National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)

The 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 NIST mission. Since 1993, SURF students from across the country have had the opportunity to gain valuable, hands-on experience, working with cutting edge technology in one of the world’s leading research organizations and home to three Nobel Prize winners. Over the course of 11 weeks, SURF students contribute to the ongoing research of one of the six NIST laboratories which are the 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. Only U.S. citizens or permanents resident are eligible to participate in the SURF Program.

National Science Foundation (NSF)

NSF funds a large number of research opportunities for undergraduate students through its REU (Research Experiences for Undergraduates) Sites program. An REU Site consists of a group of ten or so undergraduates who work in the research programs of the host institution. Each student is associated with a specific research project, where he/she works closely with the faculty and other researchers.
