ORISE is Accepting Applications for the 2016 Mickey Leland Energy Fellowship Program from Graduate and Undergraduate Students
Women and minorities encouraged to apply; deadline is Dec. 21, 2015
ORISE is currently accepting applications for the 2016 Mickey Leland
Energy Fellowship Program (MLEF), which is a 10-week summer program for
students pursuing degrees in science, technology, engineering and math.
The MLEF Program provides students who are U.S. citizens with the
opportunity to gain and develop research skills by training under the
mentorship of program officials and scientists within DOE’s Office of
Fossil Energy. This program is open to currently enrolled full-time
degree-seeking students in a science, technology, engineering or math
(STEM) program at an accredited college or university at the bachelor’s
(sophomore or higher), master’s or doctoral level with a cumulative
grade point average of 3.0 or higher.
Participants will support Office of Fossil Energy mission-related
research while gaining insight into how DOE is working to meet the
energy challenges of the future. Although all eligible candidates are
encouraged to apply, the goal of the program is to improve the
opportunities for women and minority students in the STEM fields.
The summer program may place students at one of several possible sites
• Department of Energy Headquarters, Washington, D.C. and Germantown, Md.
• National Energy Technology Laboratory, Pittsburgh, Pa.; Morgantown,
W.Va.; Albany, Ore.
• Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR), New Orleans, La.; and other SPR
sites in Louisiana and Texas
• Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, Richland, Wash.
• Sandia National Laboratory, Livermore, Calif.
• Los Alamos National Lab, Los Alamos, N.M.
• Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Berkeley, Calif.
The MLEF Program offers the following benefits:
• Direct exposure to and participation in research on DOE
mission-relevant research areas
• Hands-on research experience and training under the mentorship of
program officials and scientists
• Stipends range from $600-$850 week (depending on academic status) plus
limited housing and travel reimbursement
• Opportunities to present research at program-sponsored poster session
MLEF Program applications are due by Dec. 21, 2015. For application
