NSF is soliciting applications for the Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) Graduate Fellowship (CSGrad4US).  This new fellowship aims to increase the number and diversity of U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, or U.S. permanent residents pursuing graduate research and subsequent careers in computing. In particular, the fellowship provides an opportunity for bachelor’s degree holders who may be working in industry or other sectors to return to academia and pursue research-based doctoral degrees in a CISE discipline. 

Please refer to NSF 22-061: CSGrad4US Dear Colleague Letter for detailed information on eligibility and application instructions. The application deadline is May 19, 2022. For 2022, the application eligibility has been expanded to include most bachelor’s degree holders who are not currently enrolled in a degree-granting program. 

Please share broadly.


CSGrad4US Fellowship applicants must meet the following eligibility criteria:

  • Be a U.S. citizen, national, or permanent resident;
