We are waiting for news about the current year’s awardees.

Posted September 29, 2017

The U.S. Commerce Department’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has awarded five grants totaling more than $350,000 to support standards education in undergraduate and graduate curricula.  Since 2012, NIST’s Standards Services Curricula Development Cooperative Agreement Program has awarded 27 grants for more than $1.6 million dollars.

“It’s been gratifying watching the program grow and generate increased interest each year,” said Warren Merkel, chief of Standards Services in NIST’s Standards Coordination Office. “We received a record 49 applications this year, including many multidisciplinary approaches, with topics ranging from forensic science, additive manufacturing, law and engineering to electronic health records, cybersecurity, energy and more. This clearly demonstrates a growing awareness of the value of standards in everything we do and will truly benefit the students and U.S. industry.”

City University of New York, The City College (New York) – $70,000

Drexel University (Philadelphia) – $68,062

Purdue University (West Lafayette, Indiana) – $64,682
