NDSEG Fellows do not incur any military or other service obligation.

The DoD will offer these fellowships to individuals who have demonstrated ability and special aptitude for advanced training in science and engineering. National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate (NDSEG) Fellowships will be awarded to applicants who will pursue a doctoral degree in, or closely related to, one of the following specialties:
