NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) Virtual Workshop

Friday, September 3, 2021

2:00 P.M. - 4:00 P.M.

Humboldt State University Sponsored Programs Foundation is excited to host this National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) Virtual Workshop. The purpose of the NSF GRFP is to recognize and support outstanding graduate students who are pursuing full-time research-based master's and doctoral degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) or in STEM education. 

The GRFP provides three years of support over a five-year fellowship period for the graduate education of individuals who have demonstrated their potential for significant research achievements in STEM or STEM education. NSF actively encourages women, persons who are members of groups historically underrepresented in STEM, persons with disabilities, veterans, and undergraduate seniors to apply.
