The National Science Foundation Computer and Information Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowships (CSGrad4US) program aims to increase the number and diversity of domestic graduate students pursuing research and innovation careers in computer and information science and engineering fields. The program helps bachelor’s degree holders return to academia and pursue their research interests, enabling them to engage in innovative and high-impact projects without the burden of financial constraints.
All fellows participate in a year-long preparation program. Mentors and coaches help the fellows identify a graduate program, find a research mentor, and apply to graduate programs. Fellows also form a network with one another and with faculty advisors. Once enrolled in a qualifying graduate program, fellows receive a stipend and cost-of-education allowance for three years.
