Subject to the availability of funds and program authority, scholarships awarded will pay all required educational expenses, including full tuition, required fees, and a book allowance of up to $1,000 per year. Students will also receive a salary/stipend, including health benefits, in the range of $25,000 to $38,000 a year, depending on educational level. Students will be appointed as DoD temporary employees during the tenure of the scholarship/fellowship. An off-campus housing allowance will be based on the standard room and board rate obtained through university housing program. In the event that Congress does not approve payment of stipends or salaries, SMART will not offer such assistance. The tenure of a SMART Scholarship is up to the time typically required to complete degree studies. However, second and subsequent year awards are contingent upon determination by the SMART Executive Agent that the student is making satisfactory academic progress towards a SME degree.

The number of awards varies annually based on the number of qualified applicants. Last year, 175 awards were given.
