National Science Foundation Fellowships
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. (Awards are offered for women in engineering and computer and information science.)
Applications are welcomed from students in the sciences and women, minorities, and persons with disabilities are strongly encouraged to compete fully in this program. Applicants must be citizens of the U.S. or permanent resident aliens.
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.
All applicants are expected to apply electronically. For information go to http://www.nsf.gov/
