The Department of Energy’s Office of Science is now accepting applications for the Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program. The SCGSR program provides graduate dissertation/thesis research opportunities at DOE national laboratories.
The SCGSR program is open to current Ph.D. students in qualified graduate programs, who are conducting their graduate thesis research in targeted areas of importance to the DOE Office of Science. Applications are due at 5 p.m. (ET), April 14, 2015. For detailed information about the program, including eligibility requirements and access to the online application system, visit science.energy.gov/wdts/scgsr.
The SCGSR program supports supplemental awards to outstanding U.S. graduate students to conduct part of their graduate thesis research at a DOE national laboratory in collaboration with a DOE laboratory scientist over a 3 to 12 consecutive month period.
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 is expected to make approximately 100 awards in 2015, for project periods beginning anytime between October 2015 and September 2016.
