The DOE Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program is now accepting applications!

The Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Science is pleased to announce that the Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program is now accepting applications for the 2014 solicitation.  Applications are due 5:00pm ET on Wednesday September 24, 2014.

The SCGSR program supports supplemental awards to outstanding U.S. graduate students to conduct part of their graduate thesis research at a DOE national laboratory in collaboration with a DOE laboratory scientist for a period of 3 to 12 consecutive months—with the goal of preparing graduate students for scientific and technical careers critically important to the DOE Office of Science mission.

The SCGSR program is open to current Ph.D. students in qualified graduate programs at accredited U.S. academic institutions, who are conducting their graduate thesis research in targeted areas of importance to the DOE Office of Science. The research opportunity is expected to advance the graduate students’ overall doctoral thesis while providing access to the expertise, resources, and capabilities available at the DOE laboratories. The supplemental award provides for additional, incremental costs for living and travel expenses directly associated with conducting the SCGSR research project at the DOE host laboratory during the award period.

The Office of Science expects to make approximately 100 awards in 2014, for project periods beginning anytime between January and September 2015.

Detailed information about the program, including eligibility requirements and access to the online application system, can be found at: http://science.energy.gov/wdts/scgsr/.

The SCGSR program is sponsored and managed by the DOE Office of Science’s Office of Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists (WDTS), in collaboration with the six Office of Science research programs offices and the DOE national laboratories, and the Oak Ridge Institute of Science and Education (ORISE).

For any questions, please contact the SCGSR Program Manager, Dr. Ping Ge, at sc.scgsr@science.doe.gov.

New Guide for Dissertations, Theses, and Reports

The Graduate Student Government, Graduate Faculty Council, University Senate, and administration have approved the new “Guide to Completing a Graduate Degree and Preparing and Submitting a Dissertation, Thesis, or Report at Michigan Technological University.”

Because this Guide makes the submission process similar for all documents, and the formatting requirements are much simpler, the new requirements will be applied retroactively to all pending submissions and to all new submissions.

The web site has been updated to reflect changes for dissertations, theses, and reports.  Highlights are below:

New Deadlines

  • Deadlines to complete a degree have changed. The deadline to submit a final dissertation, thesis, or report to complete a degree in fall 2012 is December 17, 2012.
    • Students defending in fall 2012 may request an extension of this deadline in writing to Dr. Debra Charlesworth (dissertations or theses) or Ms. Nancy Byers Sprague (reports). Requests must be made prior to December 17, 2012.
    • There is no deadline to conduct a final oral examination (defense). Students are recommended to defend well in advance of the deadline to submit a final document to allow sufficient time to incorporate the technical changes required by their committee.

New Formatting Requirements

New Forms

New forms have been released, and only the new versions will be accepted.  A summary of the important changes is below:

  • Pre-defense form (this has been replaced with an online process and is no longer linked here. 3-17-21)
    • This form now only asks for the defense time & date along with committee information.
    • Students who have already submitted a Pre-defense form do not need to re-submit this form.
    • Beginning immediately, if an old Pre-defense form is submitted, the Publishing agreement that was in this form will be discarded.
  • Report on final oral examination form
    • New form for students completing a dissertation, thesis, or report.
    • Students who have already submitted a Verification of final degree requirements form do not need to submit this form.
    • Contains check-boxes for each member of the committee to provide examination results to the Graduate School.
  • Verification of final degree requirements form
    • This form will now only be required for coursework Master’s students and Master of Engineering students.
  • Approval of a final dissertation, thesis, or report [this form was replaced with a google form in summer 2021 and is no longer linked here]
    • New form for students completing a dissertation, thesis, or report.
    • Replaces the “signature page” in the dissertation, thesis, or report
    • Due before the final document is submitted to Canvas, but may not arrive earlier than one week before the final submission.
    • As the Graduate School works toward automating processes, this form will be replaced by an electronic approval process.
  • Degree completion form [this form no longer orders bound copies and is no longer linked here]
    • It updates the required number of bound copies for the Library (1 for dissertations, none for Master’s students)
    • Contains the Publishing agreement which was previously part of the Pre-defense form
