National Science Foundation Graduate Fellowship Information Sessions

ARE YOU PLANNING GRADUATE STUDIES TOWARD A PH.D. IN SCIENCE, MATH, ENGINEERING, SOCIAL, OR BEHAVIORAL FIELDS?

The NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (NSF GRFP) is the largest and one of the most prestigious awards available to support graduate studies toward Ph.D.’s in science, math, engineering, and social/behavioral fields. The NSF award provides 3 years of support, with an annual stipend of $34,000. You can learn more about the NSF award at www.nsfgrfp.org

134 MARYLAND SENIORS, RECENT ALUMNI, AND GRADUATE STUDENTS HAVE WON NSF GRADUATE FELLOWSHIPS IN THE PAST 4 YEARS!

IMPORTANT: Students may apply TWICE for the NSF GRFP - once before starting graduate studies, and once during the first two years of graduate study. To enhance your chance of success is it essential to apply at each opportunity.

We are offering two early NSF GRFP information sessions for students planning to apply this Fall 2017 or in subsequent years. Current undergraduates at all levels and recent alumni are welcome to attend, as are those who will be first or second year graduate students in Fall 2017.
