The Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship (DOE CSGF) was established in 1991 to train and produce the country's next generation of leaders in computational science. More than 425 students have been named fellows in the time since, each a representative for computing's capacity to advance science across a variety of disciplines.

Twenty new awardees — the fellowship's twenty-seventh incoming class — will begin their studies this fall:

As part of the program, these individuals receive exceptional benefits including a yearly stipend; full payment of university tuition and required fees (during the appointment period); and an annual academic allowance. Renewable for up to four years, the fellowship is guided by a comprehensive program of study that requires focused coursework in the areas of science/engineering, computer science and applied mathematics. It also includes a three-month practicum at one of 21 Department of Energy laboratories or sites across the country.

Additional details for each fellow will be available via the program's online fellow directory on or after September 1, 2017. Meanwhile, please contact us for further information.
