Hertz Foundation - Graduate Fellowships
Deadline: Anticipated 10/2021 ( Previous deadline 10/23/2020 )
Fellowships support doctoral students in the applied physical, biological, and engineering sciences, including applied mathematics, statistics, and quantitative aspects of modern biology (see eligibility fields) at participating universities. With only 10-12 awardees each year, the Hertz is perhaps the most prestigious of all fellowships offered for graduate study in the US. Through a rigorous application and interview process, the Hertz Foundation seeks to identify young scientists and engineers with the potential to change the world for the better.

- Applicants must be willing to morally commit to make their skills available to the United States in time of national emergency.
