Learn More About the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program

Are you a senior undergraduate or graduate student pursuing a research-based master’s and doctoral degree? Are you worried about finding funding to help pay for that education? The NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) may be able to help. The GRFP recognizes outstanding graduate students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics and offers them final support in pursuing advanced degrees in research-based fields.

Recipients of the GRFP are selected via a national competition. If you’re chosen, you’ll receive a $34,000 stipend, along with a $12,000 cost of education allowance each year for three years during a five-year period. The funds can be used at any accredited institution in the U.S. The program also opens doors to participate in international research and national internship opportunities.

Want to learn more? Join us on Tuesday, August 29 from 2:00–3:00 pm (EDT), as ACS hosts a GRFP webinar for students and faculty in chemistry. You’ll hear from Dr. Joerg Schlatterer, manager of the ACS Graduate and Postdoctoral Scholars Office. Schlatterer also served as the NSF GRFP Program Director from 2014 until 2017.
