Scholarship Program and Schedule

The DAGSI scholarship and fellowship programs are on hold indefinitely. However, the AFRL/DAGSI fellowship program is active. Please refer to the AFRL/DAGSI program menu for further information.

Program Enhancement Scholarships

Program Enhancement Scholarships are available for the 2010/2011 academic year.

Full tuition scholarships are available for up to two courses per term taken by a student outside his or her Home Institution. These scholarships are intended to extend the benefit of the DAGSI partnership to students outside the full tuition program, enabling them to enrich their studies by taking classes at any member school.

Scholarships are available for courses that strengthen a student's program and/or are unavailable at the Home Institution. The scholarships are available only to degree-seeking graduate engineering students in good academic standing at one of the three DAGSI partner institutions. The course (s) must be approved by the student's faculty advisor and subsequently by the Dean of the school of engineering at the student's Home Institution. Awards are made on a first come/first served basis until DAGSI funds allocated to each school for Program Enhancement awards are exhausted.

The process is initiated by the student prior to class registration, in consultation with the faculty advisor, with the Program Enhancement Application Form. The student must also fill out a DAGSI Cross Registration Form. The advisor and the department head must sign the form, which then is sent to the Dean of Engineering. The Dean makes the final decision, taking into account the availability of the desired course, the fit with the student’s program of study, the faculty advisor's recommendation, the student's justification, and the availability of funding. Program Enhancement Scholarships are course-specific. If a student wants to drop an already-approved course and sign up for a different one, he or she must fill out a DAGSI Drop Form and reapply for a scholarship through the faculty advisor and Dean. Continuity of funding in this situation is not guaranteed.

Use of Tuition Scholarship Funds

Please note the following guidelines and criteria for the use of DAGSI tuition scholarship funds. These apply both to competitive tuition scholarships and program enhancement scholarships.

  • DAGSI scholarship funds are for tuition only, paid at the current rate per credit hour set by the school offering the course. DAGSI does not cover additional fees and charges, such as registration fees, course drop-out fees, graduate application and graduation fees, charges for copies of transcripts, computer usage fees, or other miscellaneous items. Payment of such charges is the responsibility of the DAGSI student.
  • DAGSI defines a full-time graduate student as one who takes at least the minimum number of credit hours to be considered full-time as defined by the student’s Home Institution. A DAGSI Ph.D. student who has received full tuition plus assistantship or fellowship must remain a full-time student. Other DAGSI students may change their full/part time status from one term to another with no scholarship penalty.
  • DAGSI will not pay for audited courses, which do not generate credits toward the degree sought.
  • DAGSI will not pay tuition for a course taken outside the partner schools of engineering, unless the course is critical to the student's approved program of study and research. Any petition must be signed off by the faculty advisor and approved by the department head and the Dean of Engineering at the Home Institution.
  • DAGSI will not pay for a remedial or undergraduate course, unless the course is critical to the student's approved program of study and research. Any petition must be signed off by the faculty advisor and approved by the department head and the Dean of Engineering at the Home Institution.
  • DAGSI will neither pay the school nor reimburse a student for any dropped course charges. Issues involving dropped courses are strictly between the student and the school and are governed by the written policy of the school. Under such policy, the student may be liable for payment.
