Full Name:National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship
Course of Study:Engineering, Science
Campus Due Date:
- As a means of increasing the number of U.S. citizens and nationals trained in science and engineering disciplines of military importance, the Department of Defense (DoD) plans to award approximately 200 new three-year graduate fellowships, subject to the availability of funds.
- The DoD will offer these fellowships to individuals who have demonstrated the ability and special aptitude for advanced training in science and engineering.
- The NDSEG Fellowships are awarded to applicants who will pursue a doctoral degree in, or closely related to, an area of DoD interest within one of the fifteen following disciplines (see Other Information below).
- You must be nominated by Franklin College.
- The NDSEG Fellowship Program is open only to applicants who are citizens or nationals of the United States. Proof of citizenship will be required upon formal offer.
- Your field of study must fit under one of the fifteen supported disciplines (see “Other information” below).
- Applicants must have received or be on track to receive their bachelor's degrees by Fall 2011. To be eligible, applicants must either be enrolled in their final year of undergraduate studies, or have completed less than two full-time years of graduate study in the discipline in which they are applying.
- Exceptional circumstances may qualify other applicants as being at an early stage of their graduate studies, therefore making the applicant eligible for consideration.
- Applicants who have received a medical degree or Ph.D. in science or engineering are not eligible for the NDSEG fellowship.
- You must intend to pursue a doctoral degree in order to be eligible for NDSEG Fellowship support.
- If you are awarded, you must start your tenure in the fall of that year. Fellowships awarded in the spring of 2011 must start in September 2011. The NDSEG Fellowship can be deferred only under exceptional circumstances; you will not be able to defer it if you were awarded another fellowship you wish to use instead.
- NDSEG Fellows must be enrolled full-time and must be pursuing graduate study at a U.S. institution; the NDSEG Fellowship does not pay for tuition at any non-U.S. institution.
- A fellow may not accept simultaneous remuneration from another major fellowship. Fellows must be eligible to accept both the tuition benefit and the full stipend amount.
- NDSEG Fellowships last for three years and pay for full tuition and all mandatory fees, a monthly stipend, and up to $1,000 a year in medical insurance.
