National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program Information Session


The National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program is a highly competitive opportunity, open to seniors and those in their first and second year of graduate school. It provides a $34,000 stipend and a $12,000 educational allowance to the university in which you are enrolled for three years of a graduate program. It is applicable for students across the full range of programs that NSF supports, in all the social, biological and natural sciences.

You will hear more about the program and have an opportunity to ask questions. The GRFP application deadlines are in the week of October 18th. We strongly encourage you to take part in this webinar and learn more about this funding opportunity. 

Faculty willing to commit approximately an hour per week to serve as a mentor to a small student group writing their GRFP applications between September 17th and October 18th, please consider signing up here to assist.
