Solar Energy Innovators Program - Application Deadline Sept 15, 2018
The Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) Research Participation Program is designed to provide opportunities for students, postgraduates, established scientists and faculty to participate in programs, projects, and activities that support the mission of the EERE. Participants will hold appointments at the Department of Energy (DOE)-EERE Headquarters, EERE field offices, and other EERE-approved sites. Participants will receive hands-on experience that provides them with an understanding of the mission, operations, and culture of EERE.
The purpose of the Solar Energy Innovators Program is to enable selected applicants to conduct practical research on innovative solutions to the challenges faced by electric utilities, energy service providers, and electric public utility commissions as the levels of solar energy, as well as other distributed energy resources (DERs), increase on the electrical grid.
The program is administered by Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) and is currently accepting application until the September 15, 2018 deadline (https://www.zintellect.com/Opportunity/Details/DOE-EERE-RPP-SETO-2018-2108). Those selected will receive an annual stipend, allowances for health insurance and research-related expenses, and limited reimbursement for relocation expenses.
