RIT’s Peter Craig is one of 65 graduate students from 29 states to receive the award and it will fund him to conduct research at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

The program’s goal is to prepare graduate students for STEM careers critically important to the DOE Office of Science mission, by providing graduate thesis research opportunities at DOE laboratories. The SCGSR program provides supplemental awards to outstanding U.S. graduate to pursue part of their graduate thesis research at a DOE laboratory/facility in areas that address scientific challenges central to the Office of Science mission. The research opportunity is expected to…
