Selected students participate as interns appointed at one of 17 participating DOE laboratories/facilities. They perform research, under the guidance of laboratory staff scientists or engineers, on projects supporting the DOE mission.

  • U.S. Department of Energy Visiting Faculty Program (VFP) - U.S. Department of Energy

    Applications for the Visiting Faculty Program (VFP) are now open for the 2023 Spring Term. This is the first time VFP is being offered for the Spring Term. Applications are due October 5, 2022 at 5:00 PM ET. VFP seeks to increase the research competitiveness of faculty members and their students at institutions historically underrepresented in the research community in order to expand the workforce vital to the Department of Energy (DOE) mission areas. As part of the program, selected university/college faculty members collaborate with DOE laboratory research staff on a research project of mutual interest. Faculty member participants may invite up to two students (one of which may be a graduate student) to participate in the research project.

  • - Wege Center for Sustainable Design, Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University

    Do you want to be a part of the next circular design solution? Apply to Wege Prize 2023! Build a team. Propose an idea. Get expert feedback & support. Compete for cash prizes.
