The Mickey Leland Energy Fellowship (MLEF)

"The MLEF program provides opportunities to students who are pursuing degrees in science, technology (IT), engineering, or mathematics (STEM majors). The goal of the program is to improve opportunities for minority and female students in these fields, but all eligible candidates are encouraged to apply. There are many opportunities to work under the mentorship of program officials and researchers on focused research projects consistent with the mission of the Office of Fossil Energy."
