The DOE NNSA SSGF offered a competitive stipend, was available for four years of funding rather than the typical three, and offered summer internships at the national labs where I was interested in working.
I greatly appreciated having my own funding and the opportunity to undertake a practicum at a national lab, which I expected. What I did not expect is the flexibility of the program and the importance of a fellow network.
