NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Summer Course Now Open

by Graduate School

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

The upcoming award year solicitation will be available in July at NSF’s Graduate Research Fellowship Program website.

Per the previous year’s solicitation, fellowship recipients earn an annual stipend of $37,000 and a $16,000 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; and have completed no more than one academic year in a graduate degree-granting program. Application deadlines begin in mid-October.

The Graduate School is offering a self-paced online course to support NSF GRFP applicants so they can begin working on applications over the summer. Students who appear to be eligible will be emailed with an invitation to join the course.

See the GRFP site for more details. Questions? Contact Sarah Isaacson, NSF GRFP support coordinator, at
