NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program Workshops

National Science Foundation’s Graduate Research Fellowship Program

The Center for Research and Creative Activity (CRCA) is pleased to announce a workshop series on the National Science Foundation’s Graduate Research Fellowship Program (NSF GRFP). The NSF GRFP is a prestigious fellowship program that recognizes and supports early-career graduate students who demonstrate the potential to make impactful research contributions in science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) or in STEM education. The five-year fellowship provides three years of financial support with an annual stipend of $37,000.

This two part workshop series will include the following:

  • An in-person workshop on September 8th with a five person panel of previous and current NSF Graduate Research Fellows, who will share their insights on what makes for a competitive application.
  • A virtual workshop on September 15th with an overview of the program by Dr. Chris Hill, NSF Program Director for the Division of Graduate Education.

To close out the workshops, Kaitlin Maguire, Research Development Strategist for CRCA at Boise State, will provide an overview of the support and resources available to students putting together applications.
