JSA/JLab Graduate Fellowship Program

First established by the SURA Board of Trustees in 1989, this Program has been continued by JSA for doctoral students at SURA member universities conducting research related to the theoretical and experimental programs at Jefferson Lab, including nuclear and related particle physics, accelerator physics, associated science and engineering, and free electron laser program. Since program inception, over 190 fellowships have been awarded to students in 21 different SURA universities.

Beginning with the AY2013-2014 awards, each fellowship is comprised of $10,000 toward the normal academic year research assistant stipend, plus a $2,000 supplement. Conference travel support is available with each fellowship.

Eligible students must be enrolled full-time in a relevant doctoral program at a SURA member university. Awardees may not concurrently hold another major full-time fellowship or internship. Students may apply at any stage of their graduate careers or while undergraduate seniors. Awards are limited to two years and students seeking second-year support must resubmit a complete application.

Awardees are selected based on: merit and quality of proposed research; utility and relevance of proposed research to Jefferson Lab and proposed utilization of Lab resources; academic qualifications; letters of recommendation; likelihood of accomplishment of proposed research objectives by graduation.

The JSA/JLab Graduate Fellowship Program is managed and administered by the SURA Chief Governance Office on behalf of the JSA Programs Committee.
