Environmental Research Apprenticeship Program for College and University Students

The mission of the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is to protect human health and the environment.

The EPA’s Office of Research and Development (ORD) conducts timely, mission-relevant, solution-oriented research based on the principles of integrity, sustainability, and responsiveness


to the needs of the Nation.

ORD’s National Risk Management Research Laboratory’s (NRMRL’s) research portfolio spans the five goals outlined in EPA’s Strategic Plan, and directly supports efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve air quality, manage chemical risks, and protect America's water.EPA-ORD seeks applications from eligible entities to enter into a cooperative agreement with EPA that will provide training opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students on-site at ORD’s Ground Water and Ecosystems Research Division (GWERD) research facilities located in Ada, Oklahoma.

It is envisioned that the training program will increase both the effectiveness and number of future environmental scientists.

The training received under the mentorship of EPA scientists will complement the trainees’ academic coursework.

The recipient will be responsible for ensuring that the training projects are supportive of the trainees’ academic training.

Some appropriate fields of study for trainees include, but are not limited to, environmental science, water policy, chemistry, engineering, computer science, ecology, and physical and biological sciences.
