COMPUTATIONAL SCIENCE GRADUATE FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM

SPONSORING AGENCY: U.S. Department of Energy (U.S. Department of Energy, Computational Science Graduate Fellowship Home Page)

PURPOSE: The Computational Science Graduate Fellowship Program is designed to support highly capable students pursuing graduate study at U.S. universities in scientific or engineering disciplines with emphasis in high-performance computing. Fellows must also participate in off-campus research at a national Department of Energy laboratory.

FIELDS:

  • Chemistry
    Computer Sciences
    Earth Sciences
    Engineering
    Environmental Sciences
    Life Sciences
    Mathematics

    Space Sciences
    Statistics
  • with emphasis in high performance computing.

ELIGIBILITY: The program is open to U.S. citizens and permanent residents who are in their first or second year of graduate school and working toward a Ph.D. at the time of application. Exceptional senior undergraduates who can meet all the requirements may also apply.

CONDITIONS OF APPOINTMENT: During the fellowship period, fellows are expected to be registered and enrolled as full-time graduate students, conducting study and research within the objectives of the fellowship program. During the summer, students should be conducting full-time research related to the completion of their degrees, be enrolled in classes, or be on practicum assignments. Fellows have the opportunity to participate in a practicum for at least three months to gain computational science experience.

ANNUAL STIPEND:

  1. $36,000 yearly stipend
  2. A $5,000 academic allowance in first fellowship year; $1,000 academic allowance in each renewed year
  3. Tuition and fees
