Apply for the DOE Graduate Student Research Program
This notice came to the AAS via the Energy Sciences Coalition:
The Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science is pleased to announce that the Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program is now accepting applications for the 2014 solicitation. Applications are due at 5:00 pm ET on Wednesday, 24 September 2014.
The SCGSR program supports supplemental awards to outstanding US graduate students to conduct part of their graduate thesis research at a DOE national laboratory in collaboration with a DOE laboratory scientist for a period of 3 to 12 consecutive months — with the goal of preparing graduate students for scientific and technical careers critically important to the DOE Office of Science mission.
The SCGSR program is open to current PhD students in qualified graduate programs at accredited US academic institutions, who are conducting their graduate thesis research in targeted areas of importance to the DOE Office of Science. The research opportunity is expected to advance the graduate students’ overall doctoral thesis while providing access to the expertise, resources, and capabilities available at the DOE laboratories. The supplemental award provides for additional, incremental costs for living and travel expenses directly associated with conducting the SCGSR research project at the DOE host laboratory during the award period.
The Office of Science expects to make approximately 100 awards in 2014, for project periods beginning anytime between January and September 2015.
Detailed information about the program, including eligibility requirements and access to the online application system, can be found on the SCGSR webpage.
The SCGSR program is sponsored and managed by the DOE Office of Science’s Office of Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists (WDTS), in collaboration with the six Office of Science research program offices and the DOE national laboratories, and the Oak Ridge Institute of Science and Education (ORISE).
For any questions, please contact the SCGSR program manager, Dr. Ping Ge.
