Krell Institute manages three of the country’s leading four-year, federally funded science and engineering graduate fellowships. Each offers a comprehensive set of benefits including:

  • A generous yearly stipend
  • Payment of full tuition and fees at any accredited U.S. university
  • An annual academic allowance for research or professional development expenses
  • Participation in an annual fellowship meeting, with related travel expenses reimbursed
  • An onsite DOE laboratory research experience including access to state-of-the-art facilities and multidisciplinary working teams
  • The support of a growing and engaged fellowship community, including a network of alumni working in a variety of employment sectors

Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration Stewardship Science Graduate Fellowship

Established in 2006, the Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration Stewardship Science Graduate Fellowship (DOE NNSA SSGF) provides outstanding benefits and opportunities to students pursuing a Ph.D. in areas of interest to stewardship science, such as properties of materials under extreme conditions and hydrodynamics, nuclear science, or high energy density physics. The fellowship includes a 12-week research experience at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Los Alamos National Laboratory or Sandia National Laboratories.

The DOE NNSA SSGF is open to U.S. citizens who are senior undergraduates or students in their first or second year of doctoral study. The annual application period spans mid-October through early January, with fellowship offers extended by mid-April for the academic year to begin September 1. The program is funded by the National Nuclear Security Administration’s Office of Defense Programs.

Deadline: Wednesday, January 11, 2023

Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship

Established in 1991, Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship (DOE CSGF) provides financial support for students pursuing doctoral degrees in fields that use high-performance computing to solve complex problems in science and engineering. The program also funds doctoral candidates in applied mathematics, statistics, computer science or computational science − in one of those departments or their academic equivalent − who undertake research in enabling technologies for emerging high-performance systems. Fellows complete a 12-week research practicum experience at one of 21 DOE laboratory sites, with exposure to distinguished scientists, multidisciplinary research groups and some of the country’s most powerful supercomputers.

Fellows also carry out a comprehensive program of study (POS) ensuring sufficient academic breadth to succeed in computational science. The POS must provide a solid background in a scientific or engineering discipline, plus computer science and applied mathematics. A course that introduces the concept of high-performance computing is also required.

The annual DOE CSGF application period spans late-October through mid-January, with fellowship offers extended by mid-April for the academic year to begin September 1. The program is funded by Department of Energy Office of Science and the National Nuclear Security Administration’s Office of Defense Programs.

Deadline: Wednesday, January 18, 2023

Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration Laboratory Residency Graduate Fellowship

The Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration Laboratory Residency Graduate Fellowship (DOE NNSA LRGF) provides outstanding benefits and opportunities for doctoral students to work at premier national laboratories while pursuing degrees in fields relevant to the stewardship of the nation’s nuclear stockpile − including engineering and applied sciences, physics, materials, or mathematics and computational science. 

Fellowships include at least two 12-week research residencies at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratories, or the Nevada National Security Site. Fellows are encouraged to extend these residencies to carry out thesis research and other studies at the four DOE NNSA facilities.

The DOE NNSA LRGF is open to U.S. citizens who are entering their second (or later) year of doctoral study. The annual application period spans mid-November through mid-March, with fellowship offers extended by late-April for the academic year to begin September 1. The program is funded by the National Nuclear Security Administration’s Office of Defense Programs and welcomed its first class in 2018.

Deadline: Wednesday, March 15, 2023
