The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as part of its Science to Achieve Results (STAR) program, is offering Minority Academic Institutions Undergraduate Fellowships for bachelor level students in environmentally related fields of study. The deadline for receipt of pre-applications is November 18, 2002.  Subject to availability of funding, the Agency plans to award approximately 20 new fellowships by July 22, 2003.  Undergraduate level students may receive support for their final two years of undergraduate study and a Summer Internship at an EPA facility between their junior and senior years.  The fellowship program provides up $17,000 per year of support. This amount covers a $4,500 9-month stipend, $2,500 for authorized expenses, and up to $10,000 for tuition and fees.  The Summer Internship stipend provides $7,500 for support for the three month period.  This amount includes a 3-month stipend for $6000, $1000 for travel to and from the summer internship site, and $500 for travel while at the site if needed.


The EPA invites pre-applications for undergraduate MAI fellowships in academic disciplines relating to environmental research including environmental science, physical science, biological science, chemistry, environmental health, computer science, social sciences, environmental decision making, mathematics, and engineering. A pre-application provides the information needed for the merit review.  Following the merit review, top ranked applicants will be required to submit a brief formal application.

These fellowships are intended to help defray costs associated with environmentally oriented study leading to a bachelor’s degree. Instructions for completing and submitting pre-applications are found in the sections that follow. Instructions must be followed exactly or the submission will not be reviewed.

Purpose of the Program

This program was initiated in 1982 as a means to strengthen the capacity of Minority Academic Institutions to provide quality education to undergraduate students by encouraging their professional training toward advanced degrees in environmentally related fields. This goal is consistent with the mission of EPA, which is to protect human health and to safeguard the natural environment - air, water, and land - upon which life depends.  This program will benefit both the public and private sectors which will need a steady stream of well-trained environmental specialists if our society is to meet the environmental challenges of the future.


Applicants must be citizens of the United States or its territories or possessions, or be lawfully admitted to the United States for permanent residence. Resident aliens must include their green card number in their pre-application.  EPA may choose to verify this number with the Immigration and Naturalization Service.

Students must attend a fully accredited four-year U.S. Minority Academic Institution.

Minority Academic Institutions are defined as Historically Black Colleges or Universities (HBCUs), Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs), Tribal Colleges (TCs), Native Hawaiian Serving Institutions (NHSIs), and Alaska Native Serving Institutions (ANSIs).  See listings at end of this announcement.

Students must be pursuing a bachelor's degree in an environmentally related field of specialization (see fields of specialization below).

Students must have two (2) years remaining from the start of the Fall semester (Fall 2003), before receiving a bachelor’s degree.  Students must have at least a “B” average overall.

Acceptance of this fellowship does not necessarily preclude acceptance of other scholarship, fellowship, traineeship, or grant aid. However, this fellowship may not be awarded to anyone who will simultaneously be receiving other federal assistance.  If the source of the other fellowship is not federal, you may accept both awards.


The term of undergraduate fellowship is negotiated with the student and covers a period of nine months for each fellowship year. Students seeking a bachelor's degree may be supported for a maximum of two years.

Stipend and Allowances

The fellowship provides up to $17,000 per year of support. A maximum of $34,000 will be provided for bachelor’s degree fellows (two years). The $17,000 annual support covers stipend, tuition, and expenses as follows:

1. Stipends: For the 2003-2004 academic year these will be $4,500 for nine-month tenures or $500 monthly for a nine month period.   Stipends are paid directly to the Fellow. At its discretion, each fellowship institution may supplement a Fellow's stipend from institutional funds in accordance with the supplementation policy of the institution.

2. Tuition and Academic Fees: Up to $10,000 per year will be paid directly to the institution. For the purposes of this fellowship, health insurance is not considered to be an academic fee. Health insurance costs may, however, be paid from the expense budget.

3. Expense Allowance: Up to $2,500 will be provided to pay for items and activities for the direct benefit of the student's education, such as for health insurance, books, supplies, equipment, and travel to technical and scientific meetings. Specific instructions regarding the disbursement and management of the expense allowance will be provided during the award process.

4. Internship Allowance: The Summer Internship stipend provides $7,500 for support for the three month period.  This amount includes a 3-month stipend for $6000, $1000 for travel to and from the summer internship site, and $500 for travel while at the site.

Annual Fellowship Conference

If requested, Fellows are expected to attend a technical/scientific conference each year they are members of the MAI program.  This conference is expected to enhance the research efforts of the students. Resources to support this travel are to be taken from the expense allowance.

Special Requirement/Summer Internship

The fellow must agree in writing to participate (if requested) for up to 12 weeks at an EPA facility as a Summer Intern in the EPA MAI Summer Intern Program, after the first year of EPA-supported academic training.  Each Intern must complete a summer project that is designed to complement and enhance the training received under the fellowship program.  EPA will provide support for temporary relocation and provide a living stipend during the summer Internship.  Fellows will be contacted during their first year to arrange for this Internship.  The Summer Internship stipend provides $7,500 for support for the three month period.  This amount includes a 3-month stipend for $6000, $1000 for travel to and from the summer internship site, and $500 for travel while at the site if needed.


The application package for a MAI Undergraduate Fellowship consists of three major parts: 1) the pre-application, 2) three letters of recommendation, and 3), a self-addressed, stamped postcard.  The pre-application provides the reviewers with information about you and your proposed research, the letters provide support for your pre-application, and the postcard allows us to keep you informed about the status of your application.  This section provides information you will need to complete each part of the application package.

Sorting Codes

You are also asked to select a single Sorting Code and Title for your application.  This Sorting Code and Title will be used to direct your application to the appropriate review panel.  It is important that you select the most appropriate Sorting Code and Title from the list shown below.  Select only one Sorting Code and Title.

Item 11 TRANSCRIPT INFORMATION -- Provide, in tabular form, the following information taken from your transcripts: identify the institutions at which the credits were earned, dates, names and catalog numbers of courses taken, credit hours, grades received, and cumulative GPA for all courses taken at each degree level. If possible, course titles should not exceed the space available. Abbreviations are allowed.  If courses were audited or not completed, note this information.  If any institution you attended had a grading system different from the traditional "A, B, C..." system, explain the system in a succinct footnote to Item 10.  Do not leave anything out. Include data from your entire college career. DO NOT INCLUDE COPIES OF YOUR TRANSCRIPTS. Top-ranked applicants will be required to submit official copies of transcripts for validation prior to the award of the fellowship.

Letters of Recommendation

Each application package MUST include three reference letters from individuals who have knowledge of your academic record. If you have a sponsor or advisor in the program, one of these letters should come from that individual.  EPA is bound by regulation to require three letters. If the pre-application does not include three letters, it will not be reviewed. The original and six (6) copies of each required letter must be contained in an individual envelope sealed by the writer and must be included in the pre-application package.  We will not accept reference letters sent separately.

Self-addressed and Stamped Postcard

Include a postcard in your package so that we can notify you that your pre-application was received.  If your postcard with the identifying application number is not returned within 30 days of the announcement deadline, you MUST call 1-800-490-9194 to verify that your package was received.  If you do not include the postcard, you will not be notified that we received your package.


All pre-applications must be submitted in the exact format described. All necessary information is provided in the instructions. To illustrate the instructions, a sample pre-application appears at the end of this announcement. Pre-applications must include the original and six copies of each letter of reference enclosed in three individually sealed envelopes, as described above.


The  pre-applications and letters of recommendation will be reviewed by non-EPA experts from the appropriate field of study.  Students applying for fellowships must select a single Sorting Code and Title from the list provided.  Reviewers are recruited based on the specialty fields represented by the pre-applications.

Each student will be evaluated on his or her potential for success in an undergraduate study program, based on the information provided in the pre-application as described above under "Mandatory Format for Pre-Applications".  The reviewers will consider academic records, recommendations, and career goals and objectives.

Reviewers will recommend the best applicants.  Finalists will be selected for award of the fellowship based on the availability of funds, reviewers' evaluations, and program goals, such as distribution of awards across disciplines, institutions and geography, degree level being sought, and other possible indicators of program balance. Only finalists will be required to submit the following:

1. EPA Form 5770-2, "Fellowship Application;"
2. EPA Form 5700-49, "Certification Regarding Debarment, Suspension, and Other Responsibility Matters;" and
3. Sealed official transcripts from all institutions (if so instructed by EPA).

The necessary forms are available on the NCER homepage (www.epa.govhttps://www.epa.gov/research-fellowships).
