NIST Develop and Manage a Graduate Student Measurement Science and Engineering (GMSE) Fellowship Program

This NOFO seeks only applications from institutions with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to develop and manage a GMSE Fellowship Program that will provide master’s and doctoral-level graduate students with opportunities and financial assistance to obtain laboratory experiences within the NIST laboratories.

Specifically, the recipient will work cooperatively with NIST to:
1) identify (with NIST) and financially support master’s and doctoral-level graduate students to conduct on-site collaborative research with NIST staff at NIST laboratories in Gaithersburg, Maryland; Charleston, South Carolina; and/or Boulder, Colorado; 2) promote the development of a diverse, educated, and skilled pool of scientists and engineers in measurement science and engineering, 3) enable the establishment of collaborative relationships between NIST scientists and engineers and academic institution faculty and students in the area of measurement science and engineering; and 4) conduct outreach to enhance student participation from underrepresented communities in the GMSE Fellowship Program in an effort to increase diversity in the STEM workforce.
