The purpose is to promote the education, recruitment and retention of outstanding undergraduate and graduate students in science, mathematics, and engineering studies; the DoD is also interested in supporting the education of future scientists and engineers in a number of interdisciplinary areas. Scholarships awarded include a cash award of $25,000 to $41,000 per year, full tuition, health insurance, and a book allowance.

The SMART Program will allow individuals to acquire an education in exchange for a period of employment with the Department of Defense. The program is intended for U.S. citizens; students must be at least 18 years of age to be eligible for an award.

The SMART Program aims to increase the number of scientists and engineers in the DoD. The program is particularly interested in supporting individuals that demonstrate an aptitude and interest in conducting theoretical and applied research. As such, the program primarily targets "hand-on-the-bench" researchers and engineers. Individuals applying to the program should have a strong interest in working for the DoD as a civilian research scientist or engineer. Applicants must be pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree can apply online.
