National Science Foundation- Graduate Research Fellowship Program Info Session (June 7)


Are you planning or pursuing graduate studies toward a Ph.D. in life or physical sciences, math, engineering, or social/behavioral sciences?

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

The National Scholarships Office is offering an early summer NSF GRFP information session for students planning to apply this Fall 2018 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 2018.

NSF Info Session:
Thursday, June 7 from 4:05 to 5 pm
Plant Sciences Building - Room 1130

To enhance your chance of success is it essential to apply at each opportunity.
