The Hertz Foundation calls application for the Fellowship Program in the United States of America. The fellowship provides financial and lifelong professional support for the nation’s most promising graduate students in science and technology.
The Hertz Foundation Fellowship Program includes up to five years of funding, valued at up to $250,000, and the freedom to pursue innovative projects wherever they may lead. In addition, fellows take part in ongoing mentoring, symposia, and workshops with our vibrant community of more than 1200 fellows, a set of peers who span disciplines, generations, and geography.
The Hertz Foundation Fellowship Program compensation package includes a cost-of-education allowance and a personal stipend valued at up to $250,000. Fellows have two options for receiving their fellowship compensation.
Option 1: Funding from the Hertz Foundation Only
Option 2: Coordination with Another Awarding Institution
If you receive a fellowship, scholarship, or grant offer from another institution, we’ll coordinate with that institution to make sure you can take advantage of each offer and receive the maximum possible compensation.
Example: Three-year fellowship with the National Science Foundation (NSF)
