As you further your studies, get hands-on experience in NIST’s world-class laboratories. NIST is looking for graduate and doctoral students from diverse backgrounds for our funded research opportunities through our Graduate Student Measurement Science and Engineering Fellowship (GMSE) Program.
NIST partners with the Graduate Fellowships for STEM Diversity (GFSD) to fund these opportunities.
Applications are due on December 29, 2023.
You must be a U.S. citizen and a graduate student (master’s degree) or doctoral student, studying in any field that relates to NIST’s measurement science and engineering research.
GMSE researchers will get a full scholarship for graduate school tuition, as well as a stipend. Please refer to the STEM fellowships website for full list of partner universities.
As a GMSE researcher, you will be a guest researcher at NIST. You will be paid by your university. You can submit questions about payment to your university’s GFSD coordinator.

Stipend amounts may be adjusted based on the length of your internship.
At a minimum, you must complete at least one summer internship. If your fellowship is renewed, you will be expected to complete annual internships, based on the guidance of your NIST mentor.
