A presentation focused on increasing student, faculty and administrator awareness of the National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship Program will be held from noon to 1 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 11, in Room 254, Busch Student Center.
These fellowships support outstanding students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines who are pursuing research-based masters’ and doctoral degrees at accredited United States institutions. It is the oldest graduate fellowship of its kind, and has a long history of selecting recipients who achieve high levels of success in their future careers.
Fellows receive a three-year annual stipend of $34,000 along with a $12,000 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.
This information session will discuss the four major components of a GRFP proposal and provide tips and skills for writing a competitive proposal. The session is open to all undergraduate juniors and seniors and graduate students in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics supported by the NSF.
