Part of the National Defense Education Program, the Science, Mathematics and Research for Transformation (SMART) Scholarship for Service Program is an opportunity for students pursing an undergraduate or graduate degree in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines to receive a full scholarship and be gainfully employed upon degree completion.
The SMART Program aims to increase the number of scientists and engineers in the Department of Defense (DoD). The program is particularly interested in supporting individuals that demonstrate an aptitude and interest in conducting theoretical and applied research. As such, the program primarily targets "hand-on-the-bench" researchers and engineers. Individuals applying to the program should have a strong interest in working for the DoD as a civilian research scientist or engineer.
Since 2005 the SMART Scholarship has been awarded to 19 UCF students.
