DOE Computational Science Graduate Fellowship

The Krell Institute is pleased to offer DOE Computational Science Graduate Fellowship. The fellowship provides opportunity for students pursuing doctoral degrees in computer fields.  The fellowship provides outstanding benefits to students pursuing doctoral degrees in fields that use high-performance computing to solve complex science and engineering problems. Winners will receive yearly stipend of $36,000 amount.

The Krell Institute was founded in 1997 in support of the US Department of Energy’s Computational Science Graduate Fellowship program (CSGF). Mission of this institute is to help ensure a supply of scientists and engineers trained to meet workforce needs, including the DOE’s, in computational science.


  • Undergraduate seniors.
  • Applicants with no more than B.S. or B.A. degrees who are not enrolled in graduate school
  • First-year graduate students (M.S. degree or Ph.D. students without an M.S. degree).
