Defense to Double Fellowship Grants


  • Anonymous


The Department of Defense will award in April 1989 about 150 new 3-year graduate fellowships, in addition to the 140 grants already scheduled under the $10 million National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship Program. DOD started the program from concern that a declining number of U.S. citizens are pursuing advanced degrees in science and engineering fields important to national defense, according to the news release announcing the awards.

Fellowships go to students working toward doctoral degrees in aeronautical and astronautical engineering, biological sciences, chemical engineering, chemistry, cognitive, neural and behavioral sciences, computer sciences, electrical engineering, geosciences, manufacturing sciences, materials sciences, mathematics, mechanical engineering, naval architecture and ocean engineering, oceanography, physics, and toxicology.
