NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program

The National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program awards three-year fellowships to graduate students performing research in NSF-supported discplines. Only first and second year graduate students are eligible for the GRFP. 

The application cycle for the NSF GRFP is in the fall of each year, with application due dates typically in October. Please note that graduate students are only allowed to apply once, either as a first year student OR as a second year student after beginning enrollment in a graduate program. Undergraduate students (typically seniors who will be beginning graduate school the next year) are also eligible to apply. For more information, please contact your program office or visit the GRFP website at: https://www.nsfgrfp.org/
