The Rumsfeld Foundation provides grants to exceptional graduate-level scholars who have an interest in serving the nation through public service or in policy-relevant fields. The Graduate Fellowship Program provides financial support to students pursuing graduate and post-doctoral studies, as well as encourages their network of talented young professionals.
Fellowships are awarded to U.S. citizens through nominations by our confidential Advisers at universities across the country. Students may not directly apply for the Fellowship Program; they must be nominated. The Foundation does not accept outside applications.
