U.S. Department of Energy / Krell Institute - Computational Science Graduate Fellowship (DOE CSGF)
Deadline: Anticipated 1/2022 ( Previous deadline 1/13/2021 )
The DOE CSGF program funds students pursuing a PhD in scientific or engineering disciplines with an emphasis in high-performance computing. This research is conducted at DOE National Laboratories, which has high-performance computing programs in combustion, climate change, nuclear stockpile stewardship, materials sciences, resource recovery, health issues, fusion energy, DNA sequencing, and protein structures, among many others. The fellowship is for four years, renewed annually.
Computational science is interdisciplinary by nature, using algorithms, mathematics and computers to analyze and solve scientific and engineering problems. DOE CSGF participants use math and computers to conduct doctoral research within a broad array of fields including:
- Applied Mathematics
- Chemical Engineering
- Computer Science
- Environmental Science
- Life Sciences
- Machine Learning
- Materials Science
- Mechanical Engineering
- Must plan on being enrolled as full-time graduate students at an accredited U.S. college or university and conduct research in areas of interest to the DOE, during the fellowship period.
- May be undergraduate seniors or graduated applicants with no more than B.S. or B.A.
- May be first-year graduate students (M.S. degree or Ph.D. students without an M.S. degree).
- May be enrolled M.S. degree students beyond their first year provided that they plan full-time, uninterrupted study toward a Ph.D. at: 1) a different academic institution, OR 2) in a different academic department.
- May be graduates with no more than M.S. degrees who are not currently enrolled AND who will not have been enrolled in graduate school for two years prior to resuming graduate studies.
- May be first-year Ph.D. students with an M.S. degree provided that they 1) completed the M.S. degree within two years at a different academic institution, 2) completed the M.S. degree within two years in a different academic department, OR 3) prior to current enrollment, they had not been enrolled in graduate school for at least two years.
- Must be U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents.
- $38,000 annual stipend.
- Full tuition and required fees will be paid during the appointment period.
- $1,000 professional development allowance.
- A 12-week research practicum at a DOE laboratory.
