Lincoln Laboratory Fellowship Programs
Lincoln Laboratory Military Fellows Program
Each year MIT Lincoln Laboratory supports active-duty military officers by awarding Lincoln Laboratory Military Fellowships. Fellows perform research at Lincoln Laboratory approximately two days a week during the academic year. Lincoln Laboratory pays the Fellows' tuition and fees. Officers may conduct research in
If Fellows are enrolled in a graduate program, they are required to complete a thesis. Thesis topics correspond with the research the Fellows perform at Lincoln Laboratory. Fellows have both Lincoln Laboratory and university academic advisors. Laboratory supervisors are the Fellows' advisors for their day-to-day work. The Fellows' advisors on campus have primary responsibility to ensure that all of the academic department's requirements are met for graduation. If assigned with Training with Industry, officers will be assigned full time with a specific Laboratory group. Senior Service School candidates will do research at the Lexington campus while taking national security management courses on the MIT main campus.
Potential Military Fellows must be either enrolled in a graduate degree program that requires a thesis, is sponsored by Training with Industry, or is sponsored by their respective service for Senior Service School.
Lincoln Laboratory has sponsored numerous military officers from the Navy, Army, and Air Force, including master's degree students from all of the military academies, Training with Industry officers, Senior Service School attendees, and Service Academy summer students.
Graduate Fellowship Program
Lincoln Laboratory offers a limited number of graduate fellowships to science and engineering students pursuing MS or PhD degrees at partner universities. The fellowship program awards funds to support a Fellow's stipend, supplement a graduate assistantship, or subsidize other direct research expenses during the final phases of students' thesis research. The Laboratory began this program in 2002 in collaboration with five schools. Today, the Laboratory offers fellowships at eleven schools: The Ohio State University, Brigham Young University, Washington University–St. Louis, Clemson University, University of Michigan, North Carolina State University, University of Washington, New Mexico State University, University of Illinois, University of Colorado, and MIT.
