About the position

The DOE CSGF provides outstanding benefits and opportunities for doctoral students in a range of fields that use high-performance computing to solve complex problems in science and engineering. Renewable up to four years, the fellowship also seeks candidates who are researching applied mathematics, statistics or computer science advances that contribute to more effective use of emerging high-performance systems. The program is open to U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents who plan full-time, uninterrupted study toward a Ph.D. at an accredited U.S. university; senior undergraduates and first-year doctoral students may apply. Benefits include a $38,000 yearly stipend, payment of full tuition and required fees, yearly program review participation, an annual professional development allowance, and a 12-week DOE laboratory research practicum experience.

Please consider joining fellowship staff as we host an informational webinar at 2:30 p.m. CT on Thursday, December 9. Open to the first 500 individuals who join the call, this Zoom session will provide an overview of the DOE CSGF and guidance for applying and it will serve as a forum to ask related questions in a live Q&A format. The recorded session will also be made available online within 48 hours.

Deadline: Wednesday, January 12, 2022

How to apply

Materials required:

  • Transcripts: Request an official transcript from each university or college you have attended, including your current fall transcript. Official transcripts must be sent directly from the university, either via mail or through an e-transcript system. Transcripts sent by an applicant will not be accepted regardless of delivery method.
  • Green Card: If you are a lawful permanent resident (LPR) of the United States, you must send a copy of the front and back of your Green Card to the Krell Institute as a requirement of the application.
  • References: We recommend that you use the link within our online system to notify references of your request for letters. The system will send your references an email with a link to our online system where they can submit a letter. Alternatively, you can download either a PDF or MSWord version of the reference form for their use.
  • Program of Study: Generate your Program of Study (POS) with your graduate advisor’s assistance. If you cannot get a graduate advisor at your preferred institution to review your POS, ask your current advisor to help you generate and approve the proposed POS. You will be required to check a box on the final submission page that confirms that both you and your advisor approve of the POS before you are able to press the “Final Submission” button. An email will be sent to your advisor, once you submit your application, with the list of submitted coursework. If you are chosen for a fellowship, you and your advisor will be asked to sign the POS and return it to the Krell Institute.
