This information session introduces interested students to the National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP). The GRFP is an NSF-wide program that provides fellowships to students in the earliest stages of their graduate careers to pursue non-medical research in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) or in STEM education. Topics to be discussed include details of the support provided by the fellowship, eligibility requirements, application requirements and procedures, and strategies for developing strong proposals. Submission deadlines for fellowship applications will be October 22, 23, and 25, 2018, the specific day dependent on discipline. NOTE: Eligibility for the NSF GRFP is limited to students who are U.S. citizens, nationals, and permanent residents (see Program Solicitation, NSF 16-588, for further eligibility requirements).
