The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) Science, Technology and Policy (STP) Program is seeking to develop future leaders in energy efficiency and renewable energy policy. The EERE STP appointments provide an opportunity for highly talented scientists, engineers, and technical professionals (e.g. business analysts, graphic designers, informaticians) to participate in policy-related projects at EERE offices in Washington, DC. The Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO) drives research, manufacturing, and market solutions to make the abundant solar energy resources in the United States more affordable and accessible for Americans.
Applicants selected to participate will join the SETO team responsible for carrying out activities critical to the office's mission. SETO applications are reviewed (and offers are made) two times per year with an application deadline for this opportunity on January 15, 2024. All recommendations must be received by January 18, 2024 for your application to be considered. The application review process takes approximately 3-4 months. This Fellowship is typically offered as an initial one year appointment with a second year offer to extend the appointment, contingent on an annual review.

(if more than 50 miles from the address shown on the application), may be reimbursed. Participants will receive a travel and research allowance of $10,000 per appointment year to cover expenses for scientific and professional development activities.
