More Information

In this session staff will share insight into the purpose of the NSF GRFP, qualifications the program looks for in applicants, and its application components. The National Science Foundation aims to ensure the vitality of the human resource based in biological science, technology, engineering, mathematics, physical science, earth science, and social science in the United States and to reinforce its diversity by offering approximately 1,500 graduate fellowships in this competition. The Graduate Research Fellowship Program provides three years of support for graduate study leading to research-based master’s or doctoral degrees and is intended for students who are at the early stages of their graduate study.

Recent MU graduates who have received the NSF GRFP have gone onto study at the University of California-Berkeley, Dartmouth, Georgia Tech, Michigan State, Northwestern, Stanford, and Washington University.
