**Reminder**  Upcoming deadline for proposals for National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship Program http://www.nsfgrfp.org/ 

 The National Science Foundation's Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) helps ensure the vitality of the human resource base of science and engineering in the United States 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 US institutions.  The NSF welcomes applications from all qualified students and strongly encourages under-represented populations, including women, under-represented racial and ethnic minorities, and persons with disabilities, to apply for this fellowship.

GRFP Fellows Receive the Following:

- Three years of support

- $32,000 annual stipend

- $12,000 cost-of-education allowance to the institution

- International research and professional development opportunities

- XSEDE Supercomputer access


Eligible students:

GRFP Eligibility at a Glance

To be eligible for the NSF GRFP, you must:

§  be a US citizen, US national, or permanent resident

§  intend to pursue a research-based Master's or Ph.D. program in an NSF-supported field

§  be enrolled in an eligible program at an accredited United States graduate institution by Fall 2014

§  have completed no more than twelve months of full-time graduate study (or the equivalent) as of August 1, 2013

§  meet all other eligibility requirements as set forth in the current Program Solicitation

The "no more than twelve months" limit applies to your entire post-baccalaureate career, not just your current program. If you have completed less than twelve months of your Ph.D. but have previously completed a Master's degree, you would not be eligible for the GRFP, unless you meet the criteria for an extenuating circumstance as described in Section IV of the Program Solicitation.

How to Apply


The 2014 GRFP application is now available online at www.fastlane.nsf.gov/grfp/  Deadlines are November 4-8, depending on Field of Study.
