Fellowships to USA and territories students to support doctoral or master’s degree research in the STEM (science, technology, education, and mathematics) fields, as well as STEM education. Funding is intended to support students early in their graduate careers who display potential for significant achievements in STEM research or STEM education. The purpose of the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) is to help ensure the vitality and diversity of the scientific and engineering workforce of the United States.
The program recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students who are pursuing full-time research-based master's and doctoral degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) or in STEM education. GRFP supports individuals proposing a comprehensive plan for graduate education that takes individual interests and competencies into consideration. The plan describes the academic achievements, attributes, and experiences that illustrate the applicant's demonstrated potential for significant research achievements. Thus, an applicant must provide a detailed profile of their relevant education, research experience, and plans for graduate education that demonstrates this potential.
The GRFP provides three years of support for the graduate education of individuals who have demonstrated their potential for significant research achievements in STEM or STEM education. NSF especially encourages women, members of underrepresented minority groups, persons with disabilities, veterans, and undergraduate seniors to apply.
