NSF National Science Foundation
Graduate Research Fellowship Program
The NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) helps ensure the vitality of the human resource base of science and engineering in the United States and reinforces its diversity. The program recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines who are pursuing research-based master’s and doctoral degrees at accredited United States institutions.
Fellows share in the prestige and opportunities that become available when they are selected. Fellows benefit from a three-year annual stipend of $30,000 along with a $10,500 cost of education allowance for tuition and fees, opportunities for international research and professional development, and the freedom to conduct their own research at any accredited U.S. institution of graduate education they choose.
To be eligible for the NSF GRFP, you must:
- be a US citizen, US national, or permanent resident
- be in a research-focused Master’s or Ph.D. program in an NSF-supported field
- be enrolled in an eligible program at an accredited United States graduate institution by Fall 2012
- have completed no more than twelve months of full-time graduate study (or the equivalent)
- meet all other eligibility requirements as set forth in the current Program Solicitation
The “no more than twelve months” limit applies to your entire post-baccalaureate career, not just your current program. If you have completed less than twelve months of your Ph.D. but have previously completed a Master’s degree, you would not be eligible for the GRFP.
