The NIST SURF program provides undergraduates (even those set to graduate in May 2018) with an 11-week, full-time, paid summer undergraduate research experience at a National Laboratory Facility/NIST in either Gaithersburg, MD or Boulder, CO. NIST is especially interested in undergraduates who expect to attend graduate school for MS/PhD. For more information, including links to the NIST SURF site, see http://undergraduateresearch.wvu.edu/blog/2017/10/11/2018-nist-surf-internal-interest-form-now-being-accepted
WVU must submit your applications for the NIST SURF program in one proposal file. Thus, the Office of Undergraduate Research will work with you on your application and will be the recipient of all application materials. If you are interested in the 2018 NIST SURF program, please peruse the NIST SURF Site information and then fill out the internal interest form at https://honorswvu.wufoo.com/forms/m1jkkz4x1cruoug/ (due by Dec. 13, 2017).
