The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Scholars and Fellows Program is designed to support, stimulate, and tap into the intellectual capital in academia to address current and future homeland security challenges, while at the same time educating and inspiring the next generation of scientists and engineers dedicated to improving homeland security.
The undergraduate scholarships for students entering their junior year are awarded full school tuition and fees, a $1,000 monthly stipend for nine months and $500 weekly for a summer internship at a DHS-designated facility to take place the summer between their junior and senior years. Award recipients are eligible to request a one-year renewal for their senior year.
The graduate fellowships include full tuition and fees, a $2,300 monthly stipend for the full year, and the annual awards are renewable for a total of up to three years. An off-campus internship at a DHS-designated facility is also required for the graduate students. All awards started with the current academic year.
