Mickey Leland Energy Fellowships, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Fossil Energy (DOE/FE), provide paid summer internship opportunities to women and minority students who are pursuing a degree in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics. The program places fellows at a participating DOE/FE facility in the U.S., where they will gain research experience and firsthand knowledge of the DOE’s work.
Fellowships provide a weekly stipend of $500 for undergraduate students, $650 for master’s students, and $750 for doctoral and postdoctoral students. DOE/FE also covers the cost of travel to and from the host site as well as to a presentation and award ceremony.
Candidates must be women and/or minority students who are U.S. citizens and enrolled full-time in an accredited college or university. Candidates must be in their sophomore year, at least, at the time of application, and be maintaining a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better on a four-point scale.
