Description:
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 (DoD) plans to award fellowships in April 2019, subject to the availability of funds.

The National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate (NDSEG) Fellowship is highly competitive. Since its inception in 1989, NDSEG has awarded nearly 3,600 fellowships from over 58,000 applications to U.S. citizens and nationals who pursue a doctoral degree in one of fifteen supported disciplines at a U.S. institution of their choosing.

NDSEG Fellowships last for a period of up to three years (based on continued funding), and covers full tuition and mandatory fees. Fellows also receive a monthly stipend ($3,200), and up to $1,200 a year in medical insurance. The NDSEG Fellowship is sponsored by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), the Army Research Office (ARO), and the Office of Naval Research (ONR) under the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense (OSD) for Research and Engineering.
