Academic Awards and Fellowships (AAF)

Hertz Foundation Fellowships

September 18, 2016

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 tenable schools in lieu of all fees and tuition. Hertz Fellows therefore have no liability for any ordinary educational costs, regardless of their choice among tenable schools.

Successful applicants have the choice of two Fellowship options: Five Year Hertz ($32,000/ 9-month personal stipend, full tuition equivalent, renewable for up to five years) OR Five-Year Coordinated: (Hertz Period - Two Years, $38,000/ 9-month personal stipend, full tuition equivalent).

Eligibility: 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. 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.


Deadline: October 28, 2016
