NSF?s GRFP is one of the premier opportunities to fund your graduate study.
It provides 3 years of funding that you can use in a 5 year time frame.
This includes a $32,000 annual stipend and tuition. For UW graduate
students, GAIP health insurance is also covered.
While there may be an assumption this funding would be only for the ?usual
suspects? (e.g., life sciences, engineering, math, etc.), there are a
surprising number of social science disciplines included in the eligibility
list, including STEM education, Political Science, Public Policy,
Communication, Anthropology, History, and Sociology. We encourage
students in all eligible fields to look into this fellowship.
Seniors who are planning to attend graduate school can apply now and take
the funding with them to whatever school they attend. First year graduate
students (and sometimes second year students) can apply now.
The information session will cover the application process, strategies for
successful applications and more details regarding how the fellowship
operates. Application deadlines range from October 29 ? November 4, 2014.
Students should start their applications now.
