Applications are invited for Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration Stewardship Science Graduate Fellowship (DOE NNSA SSGF) for 2017-2018 academic year. U.S. citizen or permanent residents are eligible to apply for this fellowship.
The DOE NNSA SSGF program’s primary objective is to encourage the training of scientists by providing financial support to talented students who study and research designated areas of stewardship science accompanied by practical work experience at DOE NNSA research facilities.
Course Level: Fellowship is available for pursuing PhD program.
Study Subject: Fellowship is awarded in fields of study that solve complex science and engineering problems critical to stewardship science.
Scholarship Award: The DOE NNSA SSGF program provides fellows with many unique benefits:
- A $36,000 yearly stipend.
- Payment of full tuition and required fees during the appointment period at any accredited U.S. university.
- An annual $1,000 academic allowance for research or professional development expenses
- A term of up to four years, subject to annual renewal.
- Participation in an annual DOE NNSA SSGFprogram review, with related travel expenses, reimbursed.
- A 12-weekresearch practicum at one of DOE’s national defence laboratories: Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Los Alamos National Laboratory or Sandia National Laboratories (California or New Mexico).
- Augmented stipend during the practicum.
- The option to participate in the second practicum at a different DOE laboratory.
- The opportunity to join a larger scientific community that understands and appreciates the role stewardship science plays across a variety of science and engineering disciplines.
- Opportunities to attend and publish research results at other conferences.
