The Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowships provide comprehensive support for students pursuing doctoral degrees in fields using high-performance computing to solve complex science and engineering problems. The program consciously aims to foster a community of energetic and committed Ph.D. students, alumni, DOE laboratory staff, and other scientists who want to have an impact on their nation while advancing their research.
Fellowship benefits include full tuition and fees, an annual stipend of $36,000, and an academic allowance for computer equipment and/or professional development activities, for up to four years, depending on renewal. Fellows also receive a twelve-week practicum at a DOE national laboratory, which includes access to DOE supercomputers.
The program is open to U.S. citizens or permanent residents in engineering and the physical, computer, mathematical, or life sciences who plan full-time continuous study toward a Ph.D. at an accredited U.S. university. Applicants must be current seniors, recent graduates who have not begun graduate school, or first-year graduate students who have not yet received an M.S. degree as part of their program.
