DToD Fellowship Funding

A small number of one-year funding awards ($34k, plus tuition and fees) are available for select students, who are eligible under NSF rules (US citizen or permanent resident). The application for funding can be found in the application form for the DToD fellowship. Strong priority is given in allocating funds to students who enroll in the DevEng Designated Emphasis, as this demonstrates the strongest commitment to devoting the student’s graduate work to digital transformations in developing regions. Note that professional master’s degrees are not elgible for the tuition-fees-stipend per NSF rules, but they can become fellows and benefit from programming and request travel fund for relevant internships.

 Current DToD Fellows who did not previously receive DToD fellowship funding and who meet NSF funding eligibility requirements (i.e. US Citizens or Permanent Residents) may also apply for funding consideration by completing a new updated application form by the application deadline (Feb 6, 2023, 5pm Pacific Time). Current DToD fellows do not need to include a new letter of recommendation, but as part of the application you will need to provide an updated statement of research interests as well complete the section describing progress you have made in focusing your research on digital transformation for development as well as detailing your participation in the DToD program thus far. Progress made may include any educational or employment background in issues related to development economics or development engineering.
