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 plans to award approximately 180 new three-year graduate fellowships in April, subject to the availability of funds. The DoD will offer these prestigious fellowships to individuals who have demonstrated the ability and special aptitude for advanced training in science and engineering.
DSEG Fellowships last for three (3) years and pay for full tuition and all mandatory fees, a monthly stipend, and up to $1,000 a year in medical insurance (this excludes dental and vision insurance).
National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate 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 following disciplines:
-Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering
-Cognitive, Neural, and Behavioral Sciences
