National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship

 Application Submission

When is the application deadline?

5:00 PM EST on December 9, 2016; no exceptions.

When are fellowship offers announced?

Via email in April 2017.

Is there a paper form I can use?

No. All applications must be submitted online.

If I applied last year, can I have my application reactivated?

No. You will have to create an entirely new application and resubmit your transcriptsreferences, essays, and your GREs along with your online application.

Is my application complete?

Your online application is complete if all the required sections of the application have a green check next to them. You may also view the completion status of your online application by looking at the Status page.

Your NDSEG application is complete if you have submitted the online application, and the Status page shows that we have:

  • Received a General GRE score.
  • Received at least three references.

Please note that there is a difference between the sections of your online application being completed and ASEE having received all of your materials. You are able to submit the application before we have received all your materials. Submitting is not an indication that we have received your references or GRE scores. It is your responsibility to track the status of these materials via the Status page. You may do this even after you have submitted your online application.

How do I submit my application?

Applications are submitted by clicking on the "Submit Application" link in the sidebar. The link will not allow you to submit until you have entered and saved data for all required sections of the application. After you have fully filled out the application, when you click "Submit Application," a page will load saying that all sections of your application are complete and that you can submit. Once you click the "Submit Application" button, your application will be electronically submitted.

You are responsible for ensuring the proper completion and submission of each application element by 5:00 PM EST on December 9, 2016. You should monitor your account to ensure ASEE receives your reference forms and GRE scores.

Can I submit my application early?

Yes. Once all online sections of your application show as complete, we encourage you to submit your online application. We do not need to have received your supporting materials for you to submit your online application. Once you submit, you should continue to use the Overall Status page to monitor the status of your GREs and references.

What happens after I submit my application?

Once you have submitted your application, you will still be able to log in and check the status of GREs and references on your Overall Status page. Additionally, you will be able to add or edit reference information as well as change your contact information. You are encouraged to monitor your application's status after submission, as you are responsible for ensuring submission of all required materials by the deadline.

How do I withdraw my application?

If you no longer wish to be considered for the NDSEG Fellowship, you can withdraw your application. Simply click the "Withdraw application" link on the sidebar, and click the "Withdraw Application" button on the resulting page. You will not be able to edit your application after withdrawing and will have to email us to reactivate your account if you change your mind and wish to apply. Once you have withdrawn, you will not be considered for the NDSEG Fellowship.
