The Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) directorate at the NSF has developed a new program to increase underrepresented groups to pursue PhD studies in computer science.
It is aimed at CS alumni, who finished an undergraduate degree in CS between 2016 and 2019, and who have not pursued any form of graduate studies since. The deadline is April 13, 2021.
The Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) Graduate Fellowships (CSGrad4US) aim to increase the number of diverse, domestic graduate students pursuing research and innovation careers in the CISE fields: computer science, computer engineering, or information science. In particular, CSGrad4US 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 its inaugural year, a diverse cohort of 70 CSGrad4US Fellows will be selected based on their demonstrated interest and potential in pursuing a Ph.D. degree in a CISE field.
We encourage all interested alumni to apply!
