Research Associateship Programs
The National Research Council of the National Academies sponsors a number of awards for graduate, postdoctoral and senior researchers at participating federal laboratories and affiliated institutions. These awards include generous stipends ranging from $42,000 – $80,000 per year for recent Ph.D. recipients, and are proportionally high for Senior Associates. Graduate entry level stipends begin at $30,000 and are higher for additional experience. These awards provide the opportunity for recipients to do independent research in some of the best-equipped and staffed laboratories in the U.S.
