In the program's initial years, DOE NNSA LRGF students, advisors and laboratory staff will attend the annual summer meeting of the Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration Stewardship Science Graduate Fellowship (DOE NNSA SSGF). Since the two programs focus on similar fields and involve many of the same NNSA facilities, fellows will find much to share about their research and experiences when gathered as a joint community.
About the meeting: Since 2007, the DOE NNSA SSGF program review has convened fellows, alumni, DOE staff and other members of the scientific community to share ideas and support and to discover research opportunities at Department of Energy laboratories. The meeting typically includes a laboratory site visit, keynote and fellow presentations, professional development programming and fellow and laboratory poster sessions.
2018 Meeting Set for June
DOE NNSA LRGF recipients will attend the DOE NNSA SSGF Annual Program Review June 19-21, 2018, in the San Francisco Bay Area. Attendees will gather at the Argonaut Hotel in the heart of Fisherman's Wharf, just a short walk from Pier 39, shops, restaurants and the historic F-line trolley cars. Meeting details will be available in April 2018.
