DOE Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) Program

The goal of the Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program is to prepare graduate students for science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) careers critically important to the DOE Office of Science mission, by providing graduate thesis research opportunities at DOE laboratories.  The SCGSR program provides supplemental awards to outstanding U.S. graduate students to pursue part of their graduate thesis research at a DOE laboratory/facility in areas that address scientific challenges central to the Office of Science mission. The research opportunity is expected to advance the graduate students’ overall doctoral thesis while providing access to the expertise, resources, and capabilities available at the DOE laboratories/facilities.

Spring Internship Opportunity at Kennedy Space Center Florida

Internship Dates: January 16, 2018 – May 4, 2018

Students will assist NASA educators in preparation for spring educator workshops, pre-service teacher workshops and K-12 student programs. Students will learn how to teach NASA STEM hands-on activities to K-12 students, teachers and pre-service teachers. Students will get opportunities to teach these activities in formal and informal classroom settings, time to practice classroom management skills, instructional methodology, and the opportunity to expand teacher content knowledge. Students will learn how to teach to a diverse population, including under-served, under-represented, minority, disabled and low income. Students will learn how to develop and plan curriculum for NASA STEM hands-on activities. Assignments also include assembling materials for hands-on activities, and helping with logistics. Student is responsible for arranging and paying for their lodging and round trip travel expenses to KSC. Travel to programs within the Florida and Georgia region may be required and NASA will reimburse travel expenses associated with these programs beyond the KSC 50 mile radius.
