What is the Graduate Fellowship?
The Graduate Fellowship Program provides science and engineering students from Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) an opportunity to train in targeted technical areas of interest/need of the Office of Environmental Management (EM) (soil and ground water, deactivation and decommissioning, tank waste processing, artificial intelligence to include machine learning, and climate change).
The year-long, salaried fellowship will offer specialized training, leadership development, and professional networking. The fellowship stimulates the potential increase of minority students entering STEM careers at the graduate level. Additionally, a graduate fellowship opportunity provides hands-on EM field experience that could lead to a potential career opportunity within the DOE Complex.

• Be a United States Citizen

• Must be eligible for security clearance based on position requirements
