SciData and the Scientific Domain

Each of the students selected for the SciData program will be placed in two science organizations or initiatives during the two years of their degree studies.  Students will have the opportunity to work with a number of agencies including the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), the Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI), Information International Associates (IIa), and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).  Students will work closely with mentors in these agencies and have the opportunity to pursue customized research projects, substantially integrating the experience of science and academic organizations and intertwining their research and educational experiences.
