The Research Associateship Programs, conducted by the National Research Council of the National Academies, offer competitive awards four times annually for independent graduate, postdoctoral, and senior level research to be conducted in residence at participating U.S. federal laboratories and affiliated institutions. Awards are offered for research in all areas of science and engineering. Participants design their own projects to be compatible with the interests of the sponsoring laboratory. Annual stipend for recent Ph.D. recipients ranges from $42,000 to $80,000 and are higher for additional experience; graduate entry level stipend is $30,000. Both stipend levels are higher for additional experience. Awards also include relocation, professional travel, and health insurance.
