National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship

 Eligibility - Citizenship

There are four eligibility requirements: citizenship, disciplineacademic status, and the ability to accept the full benefit. You must meet all four requirements in order to be eligible.

Do I have to be a citizen of the United States to apply?

The NDSEG Fellowship Program is open only to applicants who are citizens or nationals of the United States. The term "nationals" refers to native residents of a possession of the United States such as American Samoa. It does not refer to a citizen of another country who has applied for U.S. citizenship. Persons who hold permanent resident status are not eligible. Proof of citizenship will be required upon formal offer.
