Selected Fellows/Researchers will have the opportunity to perform research on topics of interest to the U.S. Government and to interact with leading scientists performing research and/or advising at the sponsor. The extensive partnering relationships with universities and other government agencies will expose participants to a broad research community. Program participants will have the opportunity to meet government decision-makers and learn directly from them about the role of scientific research in addressing complex, real-world (i.e., operational) needs. Furthermore, fellows have the opportunity to learn how research products transition from the proof-of-concept stage to integrated production systems. Other benefits may include the following:
- Stipend Payments
- Health Insurance
- Inbound Relocation/Dislocation
