The U. S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Office of Research and Development (ORD) seeks to support a Research Training Program for college and university students.

The objective of this Request for Applications (RFA) is to support the training of undergraduate and graduate students


on site at EPA’s research facility located in Cincinnati, Ohio.

ORD conducts timely, mission-relevant, solution-oriented research based on the principles of integrity, sustainability, and responsiveness to the needs of the Nation.

The Research Training Program will substantially benefit future environmental scientists, researchers, and technicians by allowing trainees to collaborate with senior EPA-ORD scientists while conducting projects in a fully operational federal research laboratory.

The overall goal is to train the next generation of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) scientists to further the Agency’s mission to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve air quality, manage chemical risks, and protect America's water.

All training projects will be conducted at EPA’s facilities in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Some examples of the fields of study for desirable student trainees include (but are not limited to) those majoring in chemistry, engineering, biology, computer science, physical science, life science, ecology, and urban planning.
