The Hertz Foundation provides unique financial and fellowship support to the nation's most remarkable PhD students in the applied physical and biological sciences, mathematics, and engineering. Hertz Fellows become innovators and leaders serving in ways that benefit us all.


The Hertz Graduate Fellowship Award is based on merit (not need) and consists of a cost-of-education allowance and a personal-support stipend. In addition to providing the necessary funding along with the research freedom to pursue their PhD, the foundation also provides mentorship and counsel through the lifelong community of peers to which they now belong-the Hertz Community. This Community is comprised of current in-school Fellows who are pursuing their graduate degree, as well as the entire group of alumni Fellows (now totaling over 1,200).
