NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program Support


The Graduate School is assisting graduate students who wish to apply for the National Science Foundation’s Graduate Research Fellowship Program. Support includes Zoom workshops, support via Canvas modules, and one-on-one writing support.  

Fellowship recipients earn an annual stipend of $37,000 and a $12,000 cost-of-education allowance.  To be eligible, applicants must be a U.S. citizen, national, or permanent resident, have never previously applied to GRFP while enrolled in a graduate degree program, have never earned a master’s or professional degree in any field, or completed more than one academic year in a graduate degree-granting program.  Applications are due October 17 – October 21.  

Please encourage qualified students not only to apply, but to seek support along the way.  Students who register for NSF GRFP workshops will automatically be enrolled in the NSF GRFP 2023 Competition Year Canvas course.  In addition, the Grad School will email eligible students with more information and course invitations.
