DOE Computational Science Graduate Fellowship

Application Deadline:

Requirements:

CMPSC, ENV E, CH E, ME, Engineering

Purpose:

The Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship (DOE CSGF) program provides outstanding benefits and opportunities to students pursuing doctoral degrees in fields of study that use high performance computing to solve complex science and engineering problems.

The program fosters a community of bright, energetic and committed Ph.D. students, alumni, DOE laboratory staff and other scientists who share a common desire to impact the nation while advancing their science. Fellowship students represent diverse scientific and engineering disciplines but the common thread is their use of mathematical and computing techniques for their research.

Eligibility:

The following criteria will be used to determine the eligibility of those applying for DOE CSGF. Measured at the time of application, eligibility will be extended to:

Undergraduate seniors
Applicants with no more than B.S. or B.A. degrees who are not enrolled in graduate school
First-year graduate students (M.S. degree or Ph.D. students without an M.S. degree)
Enrolled M.S. degree students beyond their first year provided that they plan full-time, uninterrupted study toward a Ph.D. at: 1) a different academic institution, OR 2) in a different academic department
Applicants with no more than M.S. degrees who are not currently enrolled AND who will not have been enrolled in graduate school for two years prior to resuming graduate studies
First-year Ph.D. students with an M.S. degree provided that they 1) completed the M.S. degree within two years at a different academic institution, 2) completed the M.S. degree within two years in a different academic department, OR 3) prior to current enrollment, they had not been enrolled in graduate school for at least two years
During the fellowship period, fellows are required to be enrolled as full-time graduate students at an accredited U.S. college or university and conduct research in areas of interest to the DOE. The summer should be spent conducting full-time research related to the completion of one's degree program, enrolled in classes or on a practicum assignment.

This equal opportunity program is open to all qualified persons without regard to race, gender, religion, age, physical disability or national origin.

Terms of Award:

The DOE CSGF has defining benefits that set it apart from other science- and engineering-focused graduate fellowships:

A yearly stipend of $37,000
Payment of full tuition and required fees during the appointment period (at any accredited U.S. university)
A $5,000 academic allowance in the first fellowship year and a $1,000 allowance each renewed year (to be used for the purchase of a computer workstation or for research/professional development expenses)
Up to four years of total support, depending on renewal
A twelve-week practicum experience at one of 21 DOE national laboratories or sites, including access to DOE supercomputers
A rigorous program of study that ensures fellows have solid backgrounds in a scientific or engineering discipline plus computer science and applied mathematics
An annual program review for fellows, alumni, university and DOE laboratory staff, held each summer in the Washington, D.C. area
