Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) Science and Technology Policy (SunShot Initiative Fellowships)- Professional development of scientists and engineers interested in energy efficiency and renewable energy policy.


Higher Education Research Experiences at Oak Ridge National Laboratory- Higher Education Research Experiences at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (HERE at ORNL) provides research opportunities and associated activities for entering freshmen, undergraduate and graduate students and recent BS and AAS graduates. The program is designed to complement academic programs by utilizing the unique resources of ORNL to enhance science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education, encourage careers in science and technology, and improve scientific literacy, while at the same time contributing to the ORNL mission.


National Energy Technology Laboratory Professional Internship Program- Opportunities to participate in energy-related research


Plum Island Animal Disease Center Research Participation Program (DHS)- opportunities to conduct research on foreign animal diseases


Plum Island Animal Disease Center Research Participation Program (USDA)- opportunities to conduct research on foreign animal diseases


Transportation Security Laboratory Visiting Scientist Program- The Transportation Security Laboratory (TSL) Visiting Scientist Program is designed to allow researchers across multiple levels the opportunity for research training and education on DHS mission-relevant science and technology at a one-of-a kind federal research laboratory. The overall objective of this program is to enhance the quantity, quality and diversity of the future DHS scientific and engineering workforce. In addition, this program will be a catalyst for new ideas and skills to achieve the DHS mission and enhance interactions with the wider academic and private sector communities. Participants in this program can include undergraduate and graduate student interns, recent graduates including postdoctoral fellows, faculty researchers, and other visiting scientists. For full program details and application materials see TSL Visting Scientist Program.

Nuclear Engineering Science Laboratory Synthesis- The Nuclear Engineering Science Laboratory Synthesis (NESLS) program is a cooperative research initiative geared toward students working in nuclear engineering and science. Through one- to three-year summer internships, NESLS offers students on-the-job educational and research opportunities at a multidisciplinary national laboratory. NESLS goals: •Maximize the abilities of students through cooperative research with mentors at a national laboratory •Increase research opportunities •Provide a learning environment useful to both national laboratories and students •Train next generation nuclear scientists


December

DHS HS-STEM Summer Internship Program- The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) sponsors a 10-week summer internship program for undergraduate and graduate students majoring in homeland security related science, technology, engineering and mathematics (HS-STEM) disciplines. The program provides students with quality research experiences at federal research facilities located across the country and allows students the opportunity to establish connections with DHS professionals. It is open to students in a broad spectrum of HS-STEM Disciplines and DHS mission-relevant Research Areas. The ultimate goal of the program is to engage a diverse, educated and skilled pool of scientists and engineers in HS-STEM areas and to promote long-term relationships between students, researchers, DHS and research facilities to enhance the HS-STEM workforce.


February

Minority-serving Education Institution DHS Summer Faculty and Student Research Team Program for Minority Serving Institutions- The United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is seeking applicants for summer research appointments for faculty and student research teams from Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs). Each research team consists of one faculty and one or two students. Research is conducted during the summer at universities affiliated with DHS Centers of Excellence. At the end of the summer, faculty participants are encouraged to apply for up to $50,000 in follow-on funding. The intent of the program is to provide research opportunities to increase and enhance the scientific leadership at MSIs in research areas that support the mission and goals of DHS. In addition, the program is designed to provide faculty and students with limited DHS research experience an opportunity to understand the mission and research needs of DHS and make advances in research areas of importance to DHS, while strengthening the talent pool of scientists and engineers.
