Applications are invited for DOE Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) Program at a DOE laboratory for 3 to 12 consecutive months. The SCGSR Program provides supplemental awards for PhD students to conduct part of their graduate thesis research.
The goal of the Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program is to prepare graduate students for science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) careers critically important to the DOE Office of Science mission, by providing graduate thesis research opportunities at DOE laboratories.
The mission of the Energy Department is to ensure America’s security and prosperity by addressing its energy, environmental and nuclear challenges through transformative science and technology solutions.
Course Level: Scholarship is available for graduate students. The Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) Program provides supplemental awards for Ph.D. students to conduct part of their graduate thesis research at a DOE laboratory for 3 to 12 consecutive months.
Study Subject: The goal of the Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program is to prepare graduate students for science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) careers critically important to the DOE Office of Science mission, by providing graduate thesis research opportunities at DOE laboratories.
Scholarship Award: The SCGSR program provides supplemental awards to support part of a graduate student’s thesis research to be conducted at a DOE laboratory. Supplemental awards are intended to cover incremental costs associated with living and travel expenses during the award period. Each awardees is eligible to receive the following benefits:
-Living Stipend: Awardees are eligible to receive a monthly stipend in the amount of up to $3,000 for general living expenses while at the host DOE laboratory during the award period. The actual monthly stipend amount will be based on an assessment of the individual’s situation, with factors under consideration including, but not limited to: duration of proposed research, location of home residence, and concurrent federal funding (Under normal circumstances, awardees will receive the maximum monthly stipend). Stipends are provided directly to the awardees through direct-deposit to the awardee’s designated bank account.
-Inbound and Outbound Transportation: Awardees are eligible to be reimbursed for their in-bound and out-bound travel expenses to the host DOE laboratory. Awardees are eligible for travel reimbursement only if the host DOE national laboratory is greater than 50 miles from their university/resident location. The reimbursement applies to transportation costs only (i.e. not other relocation costs) and is limited to a total travel benefit of up to $2,000 per award.
-The SCGSR program does not provide additional support for supplies, materials, or travel while conducting the SCGSR research project at the host DOE laboratory during the award period.
-In-bound travel: refers to transportation from awardees’ home residence to the host DOE laboratory at the beginning of the award term.
-Out-bound travel: refers to transportation from the host DOE Laboratory back to awardees’ home residence at the end of the award term.
