U.S Department of Energy DOE Scholars Program at the Advanced Research Projects Agency–Energy (ARPA-E) is Now Accepting Applications

What is ARPA E?

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) is devoted exclusively to support research and development of high-potential, high-impact energy technologies that are too early for private-sector investment.

Why should I apply?

Being selected as a DOE Scholar at ARPA-E offers the following benefits:

  • Stipends starting at $600 per week for undergraduates and $650 per week for graduate students and post graduates during the internship period
  • Limited travel reimbursement to/from assigned location
  • Direct exposure to and participation in projects and activities related to defining commercialization pathways for high-impact technology development programs
  • Hands-on experience in experience in advancing the transition of cutting-edge energy technologies to market applications in a fast-paced environment
  • Identification of career goals and opportunities
  • Development of professional networks with leading scientists and subject matter experts

Eligibility

  • Be a U.S. citizenship
  • Have a Master’s or Ph.D degree or be pursuing a graduate level degree (preferably MBA or technical degree M.S./Ph.D. with a business focus)

Applicants should be prepared for deep immersion in a specific energy program area and must be comfortable and be able to complete tasks independently.  Candidate must have strong written and oral communication abilities, as well as an interest in energy and energy technologies.

The Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Science is pleased to announce that the Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program is now accepting applications for the 2019 Solicitation 1.  The deadline to apply is 5:00pm ET on Thursday, May 9, 2019.

Detailed information about the program, including eligibility requirements and access to the online application system, can be found at: https://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/facility 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 Ph.D. students in qualified graduate programs at accredited U.S. 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/dissertation while providing access to the expertise, resources, and capabilities available at the host DOE laboratories/facilities. 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/facility during the award period.

The Office of Science expects to make approximately 50 awards in 2019 Solicitation 1 cycle, for project periods beginning anytime between October 28, 2019 and March 2, 2020.

Since its inception in 2014, the SCGSR program has provided support to over 410 graduate awardees from more than 120 different U.S. universities to conduct thesis research at 18 DOE national laboratories/facilities across the nation.

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 programs offices and the DOE national laboratories/facilities, and program administration support is provided by the Oak Ridge Institute of Science and Education (ORISE).

For any questions, please contact the SCGSR Program Manager, Dr. Ping Ge, at sc.scgsr@science.doe.gov.
