We are encouraging graduate students to apply for the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. These fellowships pay an annual stipend of $32,000 for 3 years, plus $12,000 toward their tuition and fees. Graduate research fellowships are extremely prestigious, and will significantly enhance competitiveness on the job market for faculty or other professional positions.  Fellowships also are eligible for other national research resources (e.g., supercomputer time, international research funding support, etc.).

*In order to qualify, students must be a U.S. citizen, national, or permanent resident, and must not have completed more than one year of graduate study.  (This last requirement can be waived if they are changing fields after time away from school).*

To help students develop the most competitive application, we’re holding workshops for both applicants and their faculty advisors on September 19, 2014. We encourage both students and faculty to attend their respective workshops.  During student workshops, we’ll introduce strategies for making a personal connection with reviewers, and discuss the elements of a winning research project. Faculty workshops will focus on the proposed research plan.

10:45 a.m. – 12 p.m.
3:45 p.m. – 5 p.m.

You only need to attend one faculty workshop. You are welcome to attend a student workshop as well. We encourage you to discuss with your graduate students and to attend a workshop. The most likely predicator of success is support by the student’s faculty advisor in developing the research project.
