INL's Graduate Fellowship Application Opens

‚ÄčIdaho National Laboratory's Graduate Fellowship program is accepting applications through February 1, 2018. The INL Graduate Fellowship Program, a collaboration between INL and universities, is designed to identify exceptional talent in research areas aligned with INL's strategic agenda to enable the current and future mission of the Department of Energy (DOE) and INL.

This arrangement is a triad between the student, the university thesis advisor, and INL technical advisor to provide meaningful research and mentorship throughout the entire program.

INL Graduate Fellows will receive a commitment from both INL and their university with agreements to pay tuition and compensation and to provide the student the opportunity to conduct research while earning their degree. For the first years of the Ph.D. program, students will spend the majority of their time at their university taking classes while also beginning to collaborate with an INL technical advisor and possibly participating in paid INL internships. During the last years of their Ph.D. program, students will spend the majority of time at INL conducting research as outlined in their research plan. During this time, students will be receiving a salary of $60,000 and receiving financial support from INL for tuition.

To qualify, students must be enrolled in a Ph.D. program or have applied to a Ph.D. program in a science or engineering discipline closely related to INL's mission; students pursuing a master's degree in cybersecurity will also be considered. In addition, students must have the support of their university during the required coursework portion of the PhD. as well as have and maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.5.
