Each year the CCI’s host a workshop with NSF Program Directors to better prepare and inform new students about applying for the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program. This year Kathy Covert presented on the benefits and procedures of the program. Hosted by the CCHF, the session was broadcast to all the CCI’s.
The GRFP provides three years of funding for students in research oriented graduate programs in the physical and life sciences, social sciences, engineering, STEM education, and the history and philosophy of science. Applicants must be U.S. citizens, nationals, or permanent residents in their final year of undergraduate or first two years of graduate study.
Over 100 CCI members tuned in and engaged in a lively discussion and Q and A session after the presentation.
