National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship Program

The National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship Program (NDSEG). The fellowship program is sponsored by the Army Research Office, Office of Naval Research, Air Force Office of Scientific Research and the DoD High Performance Computing Modernization Program. This program is intended for U.S. citizens at or near the beginning of their doctoral studies in science or engineering programs. The fellowships are for three year tenures and include full tuition and fees, a competitive stipend, and a health insurance allowance.


National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program

The National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program (NSF-GRFP) is for U.S. citizens, nationals, or permanent resident aliens at or near the beginning of their graduate studies. This program offers a stipend of $30,000 a year for three years, a $10,500 cost of education allowance and a one-time $1,000 travel allowance. About 1,000 awards are made each year. Application opens late August, and is expected to close early November.


National Science Foundation East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes Program

The National Science Foundation East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes Program (NSF-EAPSI) provides U.S. graduate students in science and engineering first-hand research experience in Australia, China, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Singapore or Taiwan. Students receive a $5,000 stipend, international roundtrip airfare, travel to a pre-departure orientation meeting, and living accommodations by the host location. The primary goals of EAPSI are to introduce students to East Asia and Pacific science and engineering in the context of a research setting, and to help students initiate scientific relationships that will better enable future collaboration with foreign counterparts. The institutes last approximately eight weeks from June to August. Application opens online in September and closes early December.


Air Force Summer Faculty Fellowship Program

The Air Force Summer Faculty Fellowship Program (SFFP). This program is intended for US citizens or permanent residents who have an earned doctorate in science or engineering and who hold full-time science or engineering faculty positions at US colleges, community colleges and universities.
