DOE’s Office of Science is now accepting applications for Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) Awards. SCGSR graduate awardees receive supplemental funds to conduct part of their thesis research at a DOE National Lab/facility for a period of 3 to 12 consecutive months, with the goal of preparing them for STEM careers that help advance the DOE Office of Science mission.
This is a GREAT opportunity for graduate students at NAWI Alliance universities to explore doing some of their PhD research at a national lab. Past participants have found the experience to be intellectually and professionally outstanding, and this is one of the best ways to build their professional networks.
Possible NAWI-related topical areas include:
Basic Science for Advanced Manufacturing
Data and Computer Science for Materials and Chemical Sciences
Fundamental Electrochemistry for Chemical and Materials Sciences
Eligibility – for full eligibility requirements, go here:
• Must be minimum age of 18 years, and US Citizen or Permanent Resident at the time of application
• Must be enrolled full-time in a Qualified Graduate Program with the Ph.D. as the degree objective, at an accredited college or university in the United States or its territories
• Graduate Research aligned with DOE Office of Science Research Programs
• Establishment of a Collaborating DOE Laboratory Scientist
The applicant and their primary graduate thesis advisor are responsible for identifying a collaborating research scientist at a DOE laboratory and jointly developing the research proposal as part of the SCGSR application process.
