Dear Students,

I want to make you aware of the SMART Scholarship Program, a 
scholarship-for-service opportunity for _undergraduate and graduate 
students who are U.S. citizens_.  This is a highly-selective, 
prestigious, national program that fully supports your education with 
full tuition, a very generous stipend, book allowance, and Summer 
internship while in school, and then provides guaranteed employment with 
the Defense Department upon graduation.  The deadline for application is 
December 1, 2011.


The Science, Mathematics, And Research for Transformation (SMART) 
scholarship-for-service program fully funds undergraduate and graduate 
degrees in a wide range of technical areas, including all fields of 
engineering, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Brain and Cognitive Sciences, 
and Mathematics.  

Summer internships at Labs are required.  In return for fully funding 
their education, students are required work as a civilian employee at a 
Service (Army, Navy, Air Force) or DoD Agency (NSA, DIA, DARPA, etc.) 
laboratory, or other research and development activity for a period 
equal to the time the program paid for their school. Students must be 
U.S. Citizens, able to obtain a DoD Security Clearance, and be willing 
to work as a civilian in the DoD upon graduation.
