Alternate-Sponsored Fellows


This program is available for undergraduates, graduates, post graduates, faculty and visiting scientists (from government/industry).  Participants receive salary, stipend, scholarship, or some form of payment from an alternate funding source during their fellowship at PNNL. This could include money from the visitor's home university or agency, funding from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education, or any other legitimate funding agent.
These opportunities may require you to apply to an outside program and request placement with PNNL.

  • Medical Insurance is required at all time during the appointment.
PNNL does not provide health insurance benefits, nor are fellows able to purchase medical insurance through PNNL. You must provide proof of medical insurance coverage prior to arrival at PNNL.
