The Stevens Graduate Fellows Program

The Stevens Graduate Fellows (SGF) Program offers a variety of fellowships to applicants who have achieved distinction during their postsecondary educational pursuits. All awards provided through SGF are merit based and the recipient must maintain full time status as well as a satisfactory academic standing during the award period. Applicants to the SGF Program are reviewed carefully by Stevens faculty and selection is based both on standardized test results and prior academic performance. In general, students who are within approximately the top 5% of the applicant pool in terms of academic performance are considered for this program. We invite exceptional US and international graduate students to apply and join Stevens as a Graduate Fellow.
