National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowships offer recognition and three years of support for advanced study to approximately 900 outstanding graduate students in the mathematical, physical, biological, engineering, and behavioral and social sciences, including the history of science and the philosophy of science, and to research-based Ph.D. degrees in science education. Approximately 90 awards will be in the Women in Engineering (WENG) and Women in Computer and Information Science (WICS) components.
The application consists of an information form, a concise statement of educational objectives as they relate to long-range professional goals, the name of the university the candidate wishes to attend, research experience, a plan of study or research, a transcript, and GRE scores.
Applicants must be United States citizens or nationals, or permanent resident aliens of the United States. Those eligible to apply are college seniors, first-year graduate students, and others who have completed a limited amount of graduate study in science, mathematics, or engineering. Students with high grades and excellent GRE scores who plan to earn a Ph.D. in the sciences, mathematics, or engineering. GREs must be taken before December; high scores in the analytical and quantitative sections of the general test and on the subject test in the major are essential for success.
Applications are due by first of November but earlier applications are preferred. Awards announced the following March.
