EPA Greater Research Opportunities Fellowships for Undergraduate Environmental Study

Deadline: December 5, 2012

Eligibility Information:
  1. Students must attend a fully accredited U.S. college or university (located in the U.S. or its territories) for their last two years of undergraduate studies during the fellowship period.
  2. Students must also be citizens of the U.S. or its territories or possessions, or be lawfully admitted to the U.S. for permanent residence. Resident aliens must include their green card number in their application (you must have your green card at the time of application to be eligible for this Fellowship opportunity).  EPA may verify this number with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service of the Department of Homeland Security.
  3. The GRO Undergraduate Fellowship is intended for students entering their last two years of study before obtaining their first bachelor’s degree.  Students who have already earned one bachelor’s degree and are pursuing additional degrees are not eligible.  The fellowship tenure is for two academic years (9 months each) with a required paid internship during the summer after the first year. Thus, only students who will be entering their last two years of college will be considered eligible.
  4. Students must have at least a “B” average overall at the time of application submittal and during the tenure of the fellowship.
  5. During the tenure of the fellowship, students must attend a fully accredited four year U.S. institution of higher education. These schools must be listed as not highly funded for research and development capacity.  For the purposes of this solicitation, EPA considers students attending those institutions identified as receiving more than $35 million in annual federal research and development funding in the National Science Foundation’s publication “Federal Science and Engineering Support to Universities, Colleges, and Nonprofit Institutions: FY 2008,” Table 12, column 2, as ineligible under this solicitation. Students attending those institutions either not listed, or listed as having received $35 million or less as designated in column 2 of Table 12 are eligible to apply. These data can be found at:  Federal Science and Engineering Support to Universities, Colleges, and Nonprofit Institutions: Fiscal Year 2008 (PDF) (309 pp, 1.74 MB).
  6. At the time of application submittal, students attending two-year institutions or community colleges, as well as students not in attendance at an institution of higher education may be eligible to apply. However, in order to receive the fellowship, students attending two-year institutions or community colleges or students not in attendance at the time of application will need to show evidence of having received their Associate’s degree, and will need to demonstrate that they only have two years left of undergraduate studies for completion of the Bachelor’s degree, and that they have been accepted to attend an accredited eligible four year institution. This requirement is considered satisfied if the student is transferring to an accredited eligible four-year institution which has an Articulation Agreement with the two-year institution, thus meaning that all credits will transfer towards requirements for the Bachelor’s degree.  See Section III.A. Eligible Applicants below.
