Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship

Fellowship Website

Provides outstanding benefits and opportunities to students pursuing doctoral degrees in fields of study that use high performance computing to solve complex science and engineering problems.

For more than 25 years, DOE CSGF recipients have used math and computers to conduct doctoral research in many fields, including:

Applied Mathematics


Chemical Engineering


Computer Science

Environmental Science

Life Sciences

Machine Learning

Materials Science

Mechanical Engineering


For a more comprehensive look at the fields of study the DOE CSGF supports, check the work our fellows and alumni are doing.

A new DOE CSGF track began in 2018 for those pursuing an advanced degree in applied mathematics, statistics or computer science with research interests that help use emerging high performance systems more effectively. This track allows students to focus on issues in high-performance computing as a broad enabling technology and not on a particular science or engineering application.

Award Value

$38,000 stipend, full tuition and fees, $1,000 annual travel allowance; renewable for up to 4 years. Also, recipients participate in a 12 week DoE practicum and yearly conferences.
