Established in 1991, the Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship (DOE CSGF) provides outstanding benefits and opportunities to students pursuing doctoral degrees in fields that use high-performance computing to solve complex science and engineering problems.

The program fosters a community of energetic and committed Ph.D. students, alumni, DOE laboratory staff and other scientists who want to have an impact on the nation while advancing their research. Fellows come from diverse scientific and engineering disciplines but share a common interest in using computing in their research.

Applicants must be in the first year of graduate study in engineering, mathematics, or the physical, computer, or life sciences.

The DOE CSGF has defining benefits that set it apart from other science- and engineering-focused graduate fellowships:

  • A yearly stipend of $45,000
  • Payment of full tuition and required fees during the appointment period (at any accredited U.S. university)
  • An annual $1,000 professional development allowance
  • Up to four years of total support, depending on renewal
  • A twelve-week practicum experience at one of 21 DOE national laboratories or sites, including access to DOE supercomputers
  • A rigorous program of study that ensures fellows have solid backgrounds in a scientific or engineering discipline plus computer science andĀ applied mathematics
  • An annual program review for fellows, alumni, university and DOE laboratory staff, held each summer in the Washington, D.C. area
