During the academic terms, no stipend supplements will be offered and travel to the hosting site will not be required.
Travel to the hosting site for site visits, conferences, meetings, and other professional development activities may be approved during the appointment at the request of the mentor. Requests will be considered by the NNSA-MSIIP Program Manager and approved on a case-by-case basis.
Available opportunities may be at DOE and NNSA national laboratories across the United States, DOE/NNSA offices in Washington, DC and site offices.
