NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program fall 2023 workshop information session

NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program Application Workshop Series

The National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program is a competitive national fellowship that supports students pursuing research-based master’s and doctoral degrees.

The fellowship provides financial support for graduate students for three years, including an annual stipend ($37,000), and an education allowance accredited to the institution ($12,000).

UAF College of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences is offering a virtual workshop series this fall that will provide students with an overview of components associated with the NSF GRFP and guidance on preparing a competitive application. Workshop participants will be paired with mentors in their field of study who will offer direct feedback and guidance over the course of the workshop series.

An information session will take place July 18 from 2-3 p.m. to serve as a primer for the workshop series and to gauge interest. Participation in the July information session is not necessary for participation in the fall workshop series.

The workshop is open to UAF-affiliated undergraduate seniors and graduate students in their first or second year, as well as faculty wishing to learn more about the GRFP application process.

Faculty who have previously reviewed for the NSF GRFP are invited to participate as a mentor or guest speaker.
