Description:

The Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration Stewardship Science Graduate Fellowship (DOE NNSA SSGF) program provides excellent financial benefits and professional development opportunities to students pursuing a PhD in fields of study that solve complex science and engineering problems critical to stewardship science.

The fellowship program builds a community of talented and committed doctoral students, DOE NNSA SSGF alumni, DOE laboratory staff and university researchers who share a common desire to advance their science while impacting national defense. The friendships and connections formed while in the program continue to benefit alumni throughout their careers.

Fellowship includes a twelve-week practicum (research experience) at one of the DOE national defense laboratories – Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Los Alamos National Laboratory or Sandia National Laboratories.

Those eligible to apply for the program include senior undergraduate students and first and second year graduate students focusing their studies on high energy density physics, nuclear science, or properties of materials under extreme conditions and hydrodynamics.
