Description:
Open to current or recent graduate students at the Masters, Doctoral or Post-Doctoral level in relevant STEM fields (including those who have received the graduate degree within the past three years), the Rose Award provides for an academic year residency at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) including a three-week orientation seminar in Washington, D.C., conducted by the American Councils for International Education in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Energy.

The Rose Education Award commemorates the legacy of Robert Rose, founder of the U.S. Fuel Cell Council, the national trade association for fuel cell technologies in the U.S., which became the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Energy Association. Rose is well-known worldwide for his achievements in advancing hydrogen and fuel cell systems and paving the way for the U.S. Department of Energy Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Program over two decades ago.

While future awards may focus on broader clean energy topics, the first round will focus on hydrogen safety, a key enabler for the widespread deployment and successful commercial viability of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies.

Applications from candidates of traditionally under-represented groups in the STEM fields are particularly encouraged.

Rose Award recipients are expected to remain in residence at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) in Richland, Washington, for a period of 8/9 months following an initial one-month introductory seminar organized in cooperation with the US Department of Energy in Washington, DC.

Rose Awardees will receive a stipend of $25,000 to $35,000, for the full program, health insurance, round-trip travel, as well as a professional development subsidy.
