  • DOE Water Power Technologies Office Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education Fellowships — The program provides funding (salary, benefits, tuition and research/travel support) to Ph.D. students for one year, of which at least six months must be spent at a host institution and no more than six months must be spent at your home institution. The definition of a host institution is flexible (e.g., private industry, national laboratories — including remote work locations, tribes, etc.), but does not include other academic institutions. The Pacific Marine Energy Center has had multiple ORISE fellows in the first two cohorts, so please reach out to them if you are interested in applying and have any questions.
