This three-year fellowship is named for President Truman who charged Sandia in 1949 with providing "an exceptional service in the national interest" - a motto that leads Sandia to excel to this day. Truman Fellows conduct independent ground-breaking research that supports Sandia's national-security mission. Fellows choose their own research topics and benefit by having access to Sandia's state-of-the-art facilities and collaborating with some of the nation's best scientists and engineers. Fellows may work at either of Sandia's principal locations in New Mexico and California. A member of Sandia's technical staff mentors each Truman Fellow. This emphasis on research mentoring enables Fellows to become integral members of Sandia R&D teams, as evidenced by a conversion-to-staff rate of approximately 65% while acquiring unique skills during their early career development.
