Benefits & Opportunities
Unlike many of the other science- and engineering-focused graduate fellowships available to qualified students, the DOE CSGF has some unique and defining benefits − in addition to a competitive stipend.

- A yearly stipend of $36,000
- Payment of full tuition and required fees during the appointment period (at any accredited U.S. university)
- A $5,000 academic allowance in the first fellowship year and a $1,000 allowance each renewed year (to be used for the purchase of a computer workstation or for research / professional development expenses)
- The potential to renew the fellowship for up to four years of total support
Professional Development Benefits
- A twelve-week practicum experience at one of 17 DOE national laboratories that includes access to DOE supercomputers
- The opportunity to complete a specific program of study that provides a solid background in a scientific or engineering discipline, computer science and applied mathematics
- An DOE CSGF Annual Program Review for fellows, alumni, university and DOE laboratory staff, held each summer in Washington, D.C.
- DOE CSGF publications featuring insightful articles regarding practicum experiences, work at the DOE laboratories, alumni profiles, etc. − and the opportunity to be featured in one of these publications
- Access to the program's secure Wiki site to search for practicum information; access employment opportunities; share information about computing resources and other helpful tools
- The opportunity to be part of a larger community that understands and appreciates the role that computational science plays across a variety of different disciplines
