Spring/Summer 2023



U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science Graduate Students Research (SCGSR) program is open for applications.

Applications are due May 3, 2023 at 5:00PM Eastern Time.

How to Apply!

The SCGSR program supports Ph.D. candidates in the physical sciences for conducting part of their thesis research at one of 17 U.S. DOE National Laboratories in periods ranging from 3 to 12 consecutive months.

The program aims to facilitate U.S. graduate students access to specialized instrumentation and expertise that can complement those available at universities, and to foster scientific collaborations between graduate students, university faculty, and national laboratory scientists.

The program provides the awardees with a monthly stipend of up to $3,600 to support the cost of living close to the National Laboratory of their choice, plus up to $2,000 to cover transportation costs to and from the National Laboratory.

More information is available at the program’s website ( and will also be provided during two application assistance webinars (please see the program’s website for registration to the webinars). I would appreciate very much if you can make this information available to your colleagues and to the graduate students in your department.

Want to Get Involved in Reserach and Creative Opportunities?

Here's How!  
Office of Undergraduate Research and Inquiry!

Few activities are as intellectually rewarding as research. In addition to the acquisition of invaluable research skills, students will:

  • Improve communication skills
  • Gain skills in gathering and analyzing data
  • Develop creativity, problem-solving, critical thinking, and intellectual curiosity
  • Learn to work independently or in a group
  • Learn how knowledge is created and how that knowledge can be overturned with new evidence or perspectives
  • Get opportunities to present and publish their ideas

Undergraduate research can take place in  every  discipline. It is especially common in the life sciences and physical sciences, where an estimated 40 percent of students nationwide engage in research under faculty mentorship; it is also found in the humanities, social sciences, and creative and performing arts.
