HBCU/MEI Faculty Summer Program Selection Process

A committee of ORNL staff members will review applications and forward them to the appropriate ORNL lead investigators for consideration.

Faculty appointments will be made on the basis of the following criteria:

  1. the strength of the applicant’s capabilities and experience
  2. the match between the applicant’s qualifications and the research needs of the selected project
  3. the potential for establishing an ongoing research partnership

Student(s) will be selected to accompany the faculty member based on the match between the applicant’s qualifications, the research needs of the selected research project, and availability of funding.

Selection of faculty and students named in the faculty application are independent of each other. A selected faculty member’s students, therefore, are not guaranteed selection.
