National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program (NSF GRFP) Workshops for First Year PhD Students and Rising Seniors

Posted by CURCA on February 14, 2019 in Scholarships

The NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program awards three-year scholarships for graduate study in mathematical, physical, biological, engineering, and behavioral and social sciences, including the history of science. This fellowship carries a stipend of $32,000 per year plus a cost of education allowance to cover tuition and fees for three years. This is a significant graduate fellowship that affords students the freedom to focus on their research and lessen the time to degree completion.

To qualify, applicants must be U.S. citizens, have U.S. national status or be permanent residents, and intend to pursue a research-based master’s or PhD program in an NSF-supported field. Applications become available in August and the deadlines vary by discipline but are generally in late October and early November.

You will learn about review criteria for the NSF GRFP and other awards, what the review panels are looking for and how to write a strong research proposal. Students are required to commit to all four sessions.

Dates: March 6 and 27, April 10 and 24
Time: 10-11 a.m. or 1-2 p.m.
Place: 403 Capen Hall
