Summer High School Intern Program, SHIP

CHRNS supports the Summer High School Intern Program, SHIP for Juniors and Seniors to do cutting edge research under the direction of NIST Scientist and Engineers.  Some of this research has resulted in publications in scientific journals.

SHIP students will not be paid and are expected to provide their own housing and transportation. The program requires a commitment for a contiguous 8-week period (nominal hours of 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM). This program is open only to United States citizens.  

In 2023, the program will run from June 20 - August 14. The SHIP poster sessions (which all students are required to attend and participate in) will be held in-person on August 9-11, 2023.  Furthermore, students from the NCNR will give oral presentations on their research during the final week of the program.  Examples of presentations from previous years are available.

Applications are accepted on-line and are expected to go live no later than December 1, 2022. The application will close February 13, 2023 and letters of recommendation must be submitted by February 24, 2023. 

For further details see the NIST SHIP web page.
