The eFellows program places early career PhDs in engineering fields in university research postdoctoral fellowships. In addition to hands-on academic research with a faculty advisor, each fellowship cohort will participate in professional development and mentoring activities designed to prepare them for future research careers.
The eFellows program is administered by the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) with funding provided by the National Science Foundation (NSF).

Application Deadline - Cohort Three

  • Applications for the program’s third cohort are currently being accepted on a rolling basis this year. We expect fellowship awards for cohort three will start being announced on a rolling basis later this Spring. There is no hard deadline to apply. There are, however, limited slots available. Our website will verify if slots are still available until they have been filled. 
  • Please contact with questions.


The E-Fellows program will provide postdoctoral researchers with a salary of $75,000 per year, for two years. Upon selection, ASEE will issue subawards to host institutions, to cover salary, benefits and up to $3,000 for travel expenses per fellow.


The eFellows program is currently seeking qualified individuals to review applications for the program's second cohort, which is expected to start this Fall.
