National Defense Science & Engineering Graduate Fellowship

This program seeks to identify individuals whose scientific and engineering credentials will support study through doctoral degrees. The prevailing goal is to provide the United States with talented, doctorally trained American men and women who will lead state-of-the-art research projects in disciplines having the greatest payoff to national security requirements. This program is highly competitive.


As a means of increasing the number of U.S. citizens or nationals trained in disciplines of military importance in science and engineering, the Department of Defense (DoD) plans to award approximately 200 new three-year graduate fellowships. The DoD will pay the Fellow's full tuition and required fees (not to include room and board). In addition to tuition and fees, NDSEG Fellows are given stipends of appoximately $25,000 per year. 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:

- Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering
