Two New Databases For STEM Undergraduate and Graduate Students to Find Training Opportunities From U.S. Government Agencies
Two new federal interagency websites designed to connect undergraduate and graduate students with education and training opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields have been launched on Science.gov, the portal to U.S. government science information.
The two microsites, STEMUndergrads.science.gov and STEMGradStudents.science.gov, were created by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science in collaboration with participating agencies in the National Science and Technology Council’s Committee on STEM Education and the Science.gov Alliance.
The microsites were established to be the primary sources for searching Federally-sponsored opportunities for undergraduate and graduate programs in STEM areas. These opportunities range from scholarships, research internships, and graduate fellowships that undergraduate and graduate students can apply to directly to funding opportunities for academic institutions to establish innovative undergraduate and graduate training programs. The two websites will be updated on a regular basis.
The agencies participating in the two STEM websites for undergraduate and graduate students include the Departments of Agriculture, Defense, Energy, and Transportation; the Environmental Protection Agency; the National Aeronautics and Space Administration; the National Institute of Standards and Technology; the National Institutes of Health; the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration; the National Science Foundation; and the U.S. Geological Survey.
