Global Change Education Program, Dept. of Energy

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Biological and Environmental Research (BER) sponsors the Global Change Education Program (GCEP) to promote undergraduate and graduate education and training in support of the Department’s global change research activities. Global change research encompasses a number of technical areas, including atmospheric sciences, ecology, global carbon cycles, climate, and terrestrial processes.
GCEP has two components:

· Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE)

· Graduate Research Environmental Fellowships (GREF).

SURE appointments are competitive, require U.S. Citizenship, and a minimum overall GPA of 3.0 (4.0 system). In addition, GREF requires applicants to have successfully completed at least one year of graduate school.

The Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) administers the GCEP for the Department of Energy. ORISE is managed under contract by the Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU).
