Do you know the difference between an externship and an internship?
The National Science Foundation (NSF) was created in 1950 by Congress and functions as an independent federal agency that fosters advancement in the fields of science and engineering. The internship gives students valuable work experience within a federal agency and encourages them to pursue careers that help to promote the progress of science in the U.S.
The location is usually in VIRGINIA.
