DOE’s SCGSR Program Creates Opportunities for Graduate Students

 
Published: 25 February 2020

Applications Now Being Accepted for 2020 Solicitation 1

Mariusz Starzec, a 2016 SCGSR awardee from the University of North Dakota, worked with Brookhaven National Laboratory’s Cloud Processes Group, which specializes in observations of clouds and thunderstorms. His research analyzed 3D thunderstorm radar data and developed idealized models to investigate how air interacts with the core of thunderstorms.

Since its inception in 2014, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program has helped prepare graduate students for science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) careers.

The SCGSR program provides supplemental awards to outstanding U.S. graduate students to pursue part of their graduate thesis research at a DOE laboratory/facility in areas that address scientific challenges central to the Office of Science mission. The research opportunity is expected to advance the graduate students’ overall doctoral thesis while providing access to the expertise, resources, and capabilities available at the DOE laboratories/facilities.

The SCGSR program is now accepting applications for the 2020 Solicitation 1. Applications are due 5:00 pm Eastern Time on Wednesday, May 6, 2020.

Detailed information about the program, including eligibility requirements and access to the online application system, can be found at https://science.osti.gov/wdts/scgsr/.
