The NSF Graduate Research Fellowship (GRF) program is one of the most prestigious awards available for graduate studies and students from an incredibly broad range of science/engineering/science-related fields are eligible. It is open to U.S. citizens, nationals, or permanent resident aliens of the United States and funds full tuition and a generous stipend at virtually any institution in the world for any three years of a five year period at significantly more than $120,000 overall package. This workshop is designed for all undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty mentors.  It will give information on the award and application process.

 

Why now? Why not in the fall just before the application is due? Perhaps most importantly this workshop will provide tips on how to set yourself up with what you do this summer so that you have the best chances of success.

 

This workshop will take place on Tuesday, April 22, 2008 from 5:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. in 117 Little Hall. For more information about the award, visit http://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=6201 or contact Dr. Randy Duran in the Department of Chemistry at [log in to unmask].
