National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program
The National Science Foundation's Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) helps ensure the vitality of the human resource base of science and engineering in the United States and reinforces its diversity. The program recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines who are pursuing research-based master's and doctoral degrees at accredited US institutions. The NSF welcomes applications from all qualified students and strongly encourages under-represented populations, including women, under-represented racial and ethnic minorities, and persons with disabilities, to apply for this fellowship.
All deadlines are at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.

The Office of Science /Office of Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists (WDTS)
The Office of Science /Office of Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists (WDTS), is pleased to announce that it is accepting applications to its 2014 Spring Term Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internship (SULI) program, with all required application materials, including recommendations, due by 5:00 PM ET on October 1, 2013. The SULI program encourages undergraduate students to pursue science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers by providing research experiences at Department of Energy (DOE) laboratories, where selected students participate as interns appointed at participating host labs. They perform research, under the guidance of laboratory staff scientists or engineers, on projects supporting the DOE mission.
Further information, including program eligibility, requirements, host lab participation, and access to the online application system are found at:

The SULI program is sponsored and managed by the DOE Office of Science’s, Office of Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists (WDTS) in collaboration with the DOE laboratories. The Department of Energy's Office of Science is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States, and is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time.
Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education
More than a dozen federal agencies rely on the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) to help recruit and train the future workforce of scientists and engineers. Through ORISE-administered internship, scholarship, fellowship, and research appointment programs, these agencies are creating a pipeline of potential employees for the science workforce. Visit their searchable online catalog at http://see.orau.org/ to find details and applications on science education programs that support participants pursuing degrees and conducting research at national laboratories and federal research facilities nationwide.

National Research Council of the National Academies - Research Associateship Programs
The mission of the NRC Research Associateship Programs (RAP) is to promote excellence in scientific and technological research conducted by the U. S. government through the administration of programs offering graduate, postdoctoral, and senior level research opportunities at sponsoring federal laboratories and affiliated institutions. The programs provide opportunities for Graduate, Ph.D., Sc.D. or M.D. scientists and engineers of unusual promise and ability to perform research on problems largely of their own choosing, yet compatible with the research interests of the sponsoring laboratory. Application deadlines are February 1, May 1, August 1 and November 1. In these programs, prospective applicants select a research project or projects from among the large group of opportunities listed at the websitehttp://www.national-academies.org/rap.
NSF East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes for U.S. Graduate Students (EAPSI)
The East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes (EAPSI) provide U.S. graduate students in science and engineering: 1) first-hand research experiences in Australia, China, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Singapore or Taiwan; 2) an introduction to the science, science policy, and scientific infrastructure of the respective location; and 3) an orientation to the society, culture and language. The primary goals of EAPSI are to introduce students to East Asia and Pacific science and engineering in the context of a research setting, and to help students initiate scientific relationships that will better enable future collaboration with foreign counterparts. All institutes, except Japan, last approximately eight weeks from June to August. Japan lasts approximately ten weeks from June to August (specific dates are available and updated atwww.nsf.gov/eapsi).
Full Proposal Annual Deadline (due by 5 p.m. proposer's local time): 2nd Tuesday in December
