Air Force Science & Technology Fellowship Programs

Postdoctoral and Senior Research Awards

The Air Force Science & Technology Fellowship Program (AF STFP) offers nationally competitive fellowship awards to postdoctoral and senior scientists to perform collaborative research at U.S. Air Force research facilities across the country. Since 1966, the Air Force S&T Enterprise has hosted over 1,000 fellows under the NRC Research Associateship Programs and many of these researchers have gone on to successful careers in government laboratories. The AF STFP continues this tradition of providing high quality research opportunities with Air Force scientists and engineers at Air Force Research Laboratory, the Air Force Institute of Technology, and the U.S. Air Force Academy. 

We are actively seeking highly qualified candidates including recent doctoral recipients and senior researchers. Applicants should hold, or anticipate receiving, an earned doctorate in science or engineering.  Applications are accepted during four annual review cycles with deadlines of February 1, May 1, August 1, and November 1.

Awardees have the opportunity to:

  • Conduct independent research in an area compatible with the interests of the Air Force laboratories
  • Devote full-time effort to research and publication
  • Access the excellent and often unique facilities of the Air Force
  • Collaborate with leading scientists and engineers

Benefits of an AF STFP award include:

  • Base stipend starting at $76,542, which is increased based on years of experience past the doctoral degree
  • Health insurance
  • Relocation benefits
  • An allowance for professional travel
