The Mickey Leland Energy Fellowship (MLEF) Program provides students with an opportunity to gain and develop research skills with the Department of Energy’s Office of Fossil Energy for 10 weeks over the summer. For 20 years, this program has increased awareness of DOE research opportunities to students pursuing STEM degrees (science, technology, engineering and math). The goal of the program is to improve opportunities for women and minority students in these fields, however all eligible candidates are encouraged to apply. Stipends start at $600 per week ($750 for masters students and $850 for PhD students) and eligible Fellows will receive an additional travel and housing allowance. To be eligible, you must be at least 18 years of age at the time of application, a U.S. Citizen, have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0, and be enrolled full-time at an accredited college or university (sophomore year or higher) or had a Ph.D. conferred on or after January 2nd, 2014 in a STEM degree. The application closes on Friday, January 2nd, 2015!
Apply for the Leland Energy Fellowship by Jan. 2!
