Disciplines: Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM)
Years: Senior, Graduate Student

National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate (NDSEG) Fellowships are awarded to applicants who will pursue a doctoral degree in, or closely related to, an area of DoD interest within one of the fifteen following disciplines: Aeronautical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering, Biosciences, Chemistry, Cognitive, Neural, and Behavioral Sciences, Computer and Computational Sciences, Geosciences, Mathematics, Oceanography, and Physics

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 approximately 200 new three-year graduate fellowships in April 2015, subject to the availability of funds. The DoD will offer these fellowships to individuals who have demonstrated the ability and special aptitude for advanced training in science and engineering.
