Hertz Foundation Doctoral Fellowship

The Hertz Foundation awards fellowships to promising graduate students pursuing a PhD in the applied physical and biological sciences, mathematics, or engineering.

The fellowship 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 a vibrant community of more than twelve hundred fellows comprising a group of peers spanning disciplines, generations, and geography.

The foundation does not award fellowships based on an applicant’s particular field of study; however, it does require that applicants direct their work toward understanding and solving a major, near-term problem facing society. For each applicant, that could mean something different — inventing a new technology, developing a business, or applying their interests in innovative ways.

It is up to the applicant to advocate for their specific field of study and demonstrate how it will be applied to address real-world challenges with the greatest impact.

Before applying, the foundation encourages potential applicants to explore the details of the fellowship to make sure it’s a good fit.

For more information, including eligibility criteria, a list of participating graduate schools, and an FAQ, see the Hertz Foundation website.
