Description Mickey Leland Energy Fellowship

The Mickey Leland Energy Fellowship (MLEF) Program provides college students with an
opportunity to gain and develop research skills with the Department of Energy’s Office of
Fossil Energy for 10 weeks over the summer. For 20 years, this program has increased
awareness of DOE research opportunities to students pursuing STEM degrees (short for
science, technology, engineering and math). The goal of the program is to improve
opportunities for women and minority students in these fields, however all eligible candidates
are encouraged to apply.
Selected candidates will train under the mentorship of program officials and scientists on
focused research projects consistent with the mission of the Office of Fossil Energy. During the
10 weeks, Fellows will receive a stipend and some students may be eligible to receive housing
and travel allowance for the duration of the program.
At the conclusion of the program, Fellows are required to attend a "Technical Forum" where
they will present their research findings and tour a technical site located nearby.
