Application Deadline: October 28, 2016
The Fanny & John Hertz Graduate Fellowships support graduate education in the applied physical, biological, and engineering sciences or mathematics. The Graduate Fellowship Award is based on merit (not need) and consists of a cost-of-education allowance and a personal-support stipend. The cost-of-education allowance is accepted by all of the participating schools (including the University of Washington) in lieu of all fees and tuition. Hertz Fellows therefore have no liability for any ordinary educational costs, regardless of their choice among participating schools.
Eligible applicants for Hertz Fellowships must be students of the applied physical, biological, and engineering sciences who are citizens or permanent residents of the United States of America, and who are willing to morally commit to make their skills available to the United States in time of national emergency. College seniors wishing to pursue the PhD degree in any of the fields of particular interest to the Foundation, as well as graduate students already in the process of doing so, may apply. The Foundation generally does not award fellowships to students who are already beyond their first year of graduate study. The Foundation does not support students pursuing advanced professional degrees other than the PhD, such as enrollees in MD, LLD or MBA programs, although they will support the PhD portion of a joint MD/PhD study program.
