NSF GRFP Brunch & Learn Info Session

This info session introduces the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship eligibility guidelines, review process, review criteria, features of successful applications, and tips on getting started. 


The National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship supports the next generation of leaders in science. It provides three years' of funding consisting of a $37,000 stipend as well as a $12,000 cost of education allowance. This award is fully portable and may be used at a research-based master's or doctoral program at any university in most STEM fields and certain social sciences. Rising seniors as well as most first or second year graduate students are eligible to apply. NSF particularly welcomes application from groups traditionally underrepresented in STEM (women, underrepresented racial and ethnic minorities, veterans, first generation college students etc). You must be a citizen or permanent resident to be eligible.


We will discuss how to tell your story (personal, professional and educational) in ways that support your research and career planshow to write effectively about your research plan in ways that meet the NSF review criteria, as well as writing and revision strategies. We'll also cover how our office can support you through the entire application process. More details are at
