April 15, 2020 | 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m., Kauffman Center Great Hall
The NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) helps ensure the vitality of the human resource base of science and engineering in the U.S. and reinforces its diversity. The program recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines who are pursuing research-based master's and doctoral degrees at accredited U.S. institutions.
As the oldest graduate fellowship of its kind, the GRFP has a long history of selecting recipients who achieve high levels of success in their future academic and professional careers. The reputation of the GRFP follows recipients and often helps them become life-long leaders that contribute significantly to both scientific innovation and teaching.
Fellows share in the prestige and opportunities that become available when they are selected. Fellows benefit from a three-year annual stipend of $34,000 along with a $12,000 cost of education allowance for tuition and fees (paid to the institution), opportunities for international research and professional development, and the freedom to conduct their own research at any accredited U.S. institution of graduate education they choose.
The upcoming workshop on Wednesday, April 15, 2020 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Kauffman Center Great Hall will provide information to those interested in applying to this program. Dr. Gisele Muller-Parker, a former NSF Program Officer, will lead the workshop and be available to a limited number of individual or small group meetings before and after the workshop.
Faculty who mentor students (senior undergraduate students or first-year graduate students) that may be interested in applying to this program are encouraged to meet with Dr. Muller-Parker. Students with a draft plan for submitting an application to the NSF GRFP program are also encouraged to meet with Dr. Muller-Parker. Students must submit a draft plan for their application to Deb Hamernik at email@example.com prior to scheduling a meeting.
Please register to attend the workshop and indicate your interest in meeting with Dr. Muller-Parker. Registrations must be submitted by Monday, April 13, 2020.
