The NINE Summer Student Program provides graduate students with a broad overview of the exciting technical projects going on at Sandia with emphasis on the various applications of nano-engineering. As part of the program, students have the opportunity to tour Sandia’s world-class facilities and do hands-on work in the lab, using leading edge nanotech tools and techniques. Students also participate in seminars and activities that broaden their understanding of the process of innovation (idea to product), including not only technical aspects but also associated issues ranging from business concepts to intellectual property and the social impact of new technology-enabled products. The program provides the opportunity for these top students from universities around the nation to get to know each other and share their interests as they interact with Sandia researchers and entrepreneurs in exciting nano-related areas. Social activities are also planned to acquaint the students with the Albuquerque area.

Graduate students in science-related disciplines are selected by their university to participate in the NINE Summer Student Program. Universities must already be affiliated with NINE to nominate students.  For more information about how to become part of NINE and participate in NINE activities, please send an email to
