The Graduate College Office of External Fellowships will hold its annual information session on the National Science Foundation’s Graduate Research Fellowship Program (NSF-GRF) on September 9. Students considering applying and faculty and staff wishing to learn more about the fellowship are invited.
The NSF-GRF is one of the nation's premiere fellowships for graduate study. Fellowships support US citizens, nationals, and permanent residents pursuing research-based master’s and doctoral degrees in the sciences, social sciences, and engineering fields. Seniors and students in their first or second year of graduate study may apply.
The three-year fellowship provides a $34,000 annual stipend, a cost-of-education allowance, international research opportunities, and internship opportunities with federal agencies. For details on the fellowship, visit the NSF-GRF listing in our Fellowship Finder database.
The information session will feature Dr. William Hahn, former Director of the NSF-GRF program; Dr. Ken Vickery, Director of Fellowships in the Graduate College; and two Illinois awardees: TeKisha Rice from Human Development & Family Studies, and Sarah Bonson from Chemistry.
Here is a flyer for the information session. Please share this with faculty and eligible students in your unit. If you have any questions about the fellowship or the session, please contact Ken Vickery at email@example.com.
Also, the Office of External Fellowships offers individualized advising for students applying for the NSF-GRF (and for any other external fellowship). For details, visit our proposal advising webpage.
