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 review of its merit. Top ranked applicants following the merit review will be required to submit a brief formal application.

These fellowships are intended to help defray costs associated with environmentally oriented study leading to the 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 provide leadership in the nation's environmental science, research, education, assessment, restoration, and preservation efforts. 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), and 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 2002), 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.



The term of a undergraduate fellowship is negotiated with students and covers a period of 9 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 $15,200 per year of support. A maximum of $30,400 will be provided for bachelor's degree fellows (two years). The $15,200 annual support covers stipend, tuition, and expenses as follows:

  • Stipends: For the 2002-2003 academic year these will be $2,700 for 9-month tenures or $300 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.

  • 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.
  • 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.
    • Annual Fellowships Conference
      Fellows are expected to attend a technical/scientific conference each year as long as they are in the 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 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 will be asked to select a single Sorting Code for your application. This Sorting Code will be used to direct your application to the appropriate review panel. It is important that you select the most appropriate Sorting Code from the list shown below. If you select more than one Sorting Code, your pre-application will be assigned to the first one you select, regardless of whether it is the most appropriate.

F2-MAI-P1 Natural and Life Sciences
F2-MAI-P2 Environmental Science
F2-MAI-P3 Engineering
F2-MAI-P4 Social Sciences
F2-MAI-Q1 Physical Sciences
F2-MAI-Q2 Mathematics and Computer Science
F2-MAI-Q3 Economics

Mandatory Format for Pre-applications

The pre-application part of your package consists of ten (10) items. The pre-application must be completed using a 12 point or equivalent typeface on 8-1/2 x 11-in paper with one-inch margins all around. Page limitations for individual components of the pre-application are specified below. Do not exceed these limits or the proposal will be ineligible. Do not submit materials permanently bound or in ring binders. You must submit the original and six (6) copies of all required materials.


Item 1 PERSONAL DATA -- provide your full name (last name first), current address, permanent address, and home and work telephone numbers. If you can be reached by fax or e-mail, include that information as well. (Optional -- for statistical reporting purposes only, we ask you to include your gender and race, e.g., African-American, white, Hispanic, native American, Asian and Pacific Islander, etc.)

Item 2 CITIZENSHIP STATUS -- state whether you are a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. If you are a citizen, give the city of your birth. If you are a resident alien, provide your green card number. EPA may choose to verify this information.

Item 3 DEGREE SOUGHT -- state bachelor's (e.g., B.S., B.A., etc.). Include the month and year the degree is expected to be awarded.

Item 4 SORTING CODE -- from list provided above. You MUST select only one. Your pre-application will be reviewed by individuals from the field you select. This code must also appear in the address for delivery of your pre-application, as specified above.

Item 5 AREA OF RESEARCH INTEREST -- provide a brief description for your research area of interest, if a specific topic has not yet been selected (1 - 2 paragraphs).

Item 6 COLLEGE/UNIVERSITY, SCHOOL OR DEPARTMENT -- Name and location of your current university, school or department from which your degree will be obtained.

Item 7 NAME AND ADDRESS OF UNDERGRADUATE ADVISOR -- If you have an advisor, give his or her name, address, and telecommunications data, including phone, fax, and e-mail, if available. If you do not yet have an advisor, write "NA".

Item 8 STATEMENT OF OBJECTIVES - This item will be of paramount importance in evaluating your request for a fellowship. Your answer, therefore, should be well thought out and expressed in a clear and detailed but concise manner. The statement should be in the following format.
A. Introduction: Include any background information you believe is pertinent and provides insight into why you have chosen the goals you are pursuing.

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 sorting code from the list provided. Reviewers are recruited based on the specialty fields represented by the pre-applications.

Each student will be evaluated based on his or her potential for success in an undergraduate study program.

Students will be evaluated based on the information provided in the pre-application as described above under "Mandatory Format for Pre-Applications".

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.gov/ncer/fellow/).
