EPA is continuing to offer undergraduate fellowships to students in environmentally related fields of study.  By enhancing and supporting quality environmental education for undergraduate students, the GRO supported fellows have provided new environmental research in the physical, biological, health, and social sciences as well as in engineering. Minority applicants are especially encouraged to apply since the number of minority applicants has historically been low.

 Eligible students will receive support for their junior and senior  years of undergraduate study and for an internship at an EPA facility  during the summer of their junior year. The fellowship provides up to  $19,700 per academic year of support and $9,500 of support for a  three-month summer internship. Applicants must be citizens of the United States or its territories or  possessions, or be lawfully admitted to the United States for permanent  residence. They must also attend a fully accredited four-year U.S. Have at least a 'B' average overall.

Applicants must be a sophmore to apply The fellows also participate in a 12 week long Summer Internship  Program. The internship offers them the opportunity to work at an EPA  research laboratory or another EPA facility to enhance their  undergraduate educational experience and to gain valuable professional  training.  The internship program is administered by Consolidated  Safety Services, Inc. (CSS), a woman-owned small business founded in 1988 that provides scientific program support, environmental safety and  health, and transportation safety services under contract to EPA and  other Federal agencies.
