Under the NNEMS program, a range of fellowship activities are offered to help students increase their knowledge of environmental issues while refining their professional skills. Each year, the NNEMS program offers approximately 30-40 fellowships, developed and sponsored by EPA Headquarters in Washington, D.C. and in EPA’s 10 regional offices and laboratories throughout the United States.

Typically, the research is conducted at an EPA office or laboratory, although other arrangements can be made in certain circumstances.
