National Physical Science Consortium Fellowship
In the traditional fellowship, initial support may be for two or three years, or for a full six years, depending on the employer-sponsor. If the initial support is for the shorter period, it may be extended up to six years at the discretion of the employer. Students typically apply while seniors in college. The Dissertation Support Program covers the period of dissertation research and defense, up to a maximum of four years. The charge to the employer for each student supported is $21,000, of which $16,000 is the stipend to the student and $5,000 goes to NPSC to support its operations. The charge is subject to change at the discretion of the NPSC Board of Directors.Though the fields supported can vary annually depending on employer needs, in general NPSC covers the following: Astronomy, Chemistry, Computer Science, Geology, Materials Science, Mathematical Sciences, Physics, and their subdisciplines, and related engineering fields: Chemical, Computer, Electrical, Environmental, Mechanical. NPSC welcomes applications from any qualified U.S. citizen who has the ability to pursue graduate work at an NPSC member institution. NPSC attempts to recruit a broad pool of applicants with special emphasis on underrepresented minorities and women.
