Journeyman Fellows are selected by an ARL Review Committee based on their overall qualifications and technical proposal addressing specific needs defined by ARL. They work in a unique Army laboratory environment, while interacting with senior ARL scientists and engineers. Fellowships are awarded for one year and may be renewed based upon recommendation of the advisor and availability of laboratory funds.
