The SCGSR program has been established to support graduates students to do a part of their graduate thesis research at a DOE laboratory. The SCGSR program provides supplemental awards for graduate students to spend 3 to 12 consecutive months at a DOE national laboratory conducting graduate thesis research in a priority research area in collaboration with a DOE laboratory scientist. The award provides support for inbound and outbound travel to the laboratory, and a monthly stipend of up to $3,000 for general living expenses while at the host DOE laboratory during the award period.
For over 50 years the Department of Energy (DOE) has supported the education and training of scientists, engineers, and technology specialists to maintain the scientific and technical workforce needed to address the Department’s and Nation’s complex challenges. The DOE Office of Science has the responsibility to train the next generation of scientists who will carry out its mission—to deliver the scientific discoveries and major scientific tools to transform our understanding of nature and to advance the energy, economic, and national security of the United States.
Only U.S. citizens are eligible to apply for the DOE SCGSR program
A complete application must be submitted online by September 24, 2014, at 5:00 PM Eastern Standard Time.
