The Graduate School & the Office of Fellowships and Benefits are excited to announce a virtual workshop for students preparing applications for the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program. Students attending this event will have the opportunity to hear from a panel of current NSF GRFP recipients regarding the best strategies for putting together award-winning applications.

The purpose of the NSF GRFP is to help ensure the vitality and diversity of the scientific and engineering workforce of the United States. The program recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students who are pursuing research-based master’s and doctoral degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) or in STEM education. The GRFP provides three years of support for the graduate education of individuals who have demonstrated their potential for significant research achievements in STEM or STEM education. NSF GRFP especially encourages women, members of underrepresented minority groups, persons with disabilities, veterans, and undergraduate seniors to apply. The fellowship includes a $34,000-per-year stipend for three years and includes a tuition waiver.

Students eligible for the NSF GRFP are STEM field (or studying a STEM-related issue) senior undergraduates or recent graduates with a bachelor’s degree only; or graduate students in their first or second year of graduate studies. U.S. citizenship is a prerequisite. Undergraduate seniors and bachelor’s degree holders have no restrictions on the number of times they may apply before enrolling in a degree-granting graduate program. Graduate students enrolled in a degree-granting graduate program are limited to one application to the GRFP, submitted in the first year or beginning of the second year of their degree program. Please reference the solicitation for full eligibility details.
