The National Institute of Standards and Technology has announced their Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Program for students majoring in science, engineering, and mathematics. This program operates at NIST’s Boulder, Colorado campus. NIST SURF BOULDER proposals are handled as a limited submission. This means it is an IIT internal competition, with IIT sending NIST only the best student applications. Therefore, NIST SURF BOULDER proposals are handled in a special manner.
