IMG_20151122_125930GRO Undergraduate Fellowships

EPA offers Greater Research Opportunities (GRO) Undergraduate Fellowships for bachelor level students in environmentally related fields of study. By enhancing and supporting environmental education for undergraduate students, GRO fellows have provided new environmental research in the physical, biological, health and social sciences, as well as in engineering.

Eligible students will receive support for their junior and senior years of undergraduate study and an internship at an EPA facility during the summer of their junior year. The fellowship provides up to $19,700 for each academic year of support and $9,500 for a three-month summer internship.

GRO fellows participate in a 12-week long summer internship program. The internship offers students the opportunity to work at an EPA research laboratory or facility to enhance their undergraduate educational experience and gain valuable professional training.
