NSF announces 2,000 Fellowship Awards for its Graduate Research Fellowship Program

The National Science Foundation’s (NSF) has announced the offer of 2,000 fellowship awards, following a national competition for its Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP). The program recruits high-potential, early-career scientists and engineers and supports their graduate research training in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.

According to NSF acting assistant director for Education and Human Resources, Jim Lewis, “To support U.S. leadership and innovation in science and engineering, we must recognize and nurture talent from all of our nation’s communities. I am pleased that again this year, the competition has selected talented students from all economic backgrounds and all demographic categories. In addition, NSF worked successfully to accommodate students from U.S. islands devastated by Hurricanes Maria and Irma, so that they could still compete for a fellowship.”
