Executive Summary
The DOE Computational Science Graduate Fellowship (DOE CSGF) program began in
1991. Since then over 200 exceptionally talented students have participated and graduates are
now performing valuable work at DOE laboratories, universities, and industry. This is a very
selective program; last year only ~5% of the applications were successful. Each student
agrees to perform a research practicum at a participating DOE laboratory.
This guide suggests “good practices” to increase the likelihood that the practicum is
rewarding for all involved. It includes a summary of the practicum advisor’s responsibilities,
a discussion of resources available to help the practicum advisor be successful, and
concludes with a collection of observations from past practicum advisors.
