Participating students who receive scholarships from this program are required to serve a 10-week internship during their studies and complete a post-graduation employment commitment equivalent to the length of the scholarship or one year, whichever is longer. OPM operates this collection of information for NSF under a reimbursable (Economy Act) agreement.
