Each year the National Science Foundation awards approximately 1,000 three-year Graduate Fellowships. NSF Fellows are expected to contribute significantly to research, teaching and industrial applications in science, mathematics and engineering.
You do not have to be accepted to a graduate program to apply and being awarded an NSF Fellowship can enhance your graduate school applications. If you have previously been awarded an NSF REU and have plans for graduate school, please consider applying.
Applications are welcomed from students in the sciences and women, minorities, and persons with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply. Applicants must be citizens of the U.S. or permanent residents.
Fellowships are awarded for graduate study leading to research-based master’s or doctoral degrees in the fields of science (natural, physical and social), mathematics and engineering. Awards are also made for work toward a research-based PhD in science education. Practice-oriented programs are not eligible for support. Research with disease-related goals is also not eligible for support.
