Technical areas of interest for the fellowship will span across a range of topics, including:
- Environmental Remediation and Stewardship
- Nuclear Materials Processing and Disposition
- Cyber Security
- Advance Manufacturing
- Climate Change
- Deactivation & Decommissioning
- Artificial Intelligence
The program’s goal is to develop exceptional graduate students into future leaders who pursue careers at the DOE, DOE national laboratories, DOE contractors, other federal agencies or STEM-related industry.
