NSF is soliciting proposals for GRF awards for FY 09; application
deadlines cluster at the beginning of November 2008 and vary by field.
GRFs provide three years of "early-stage" support for graduate students
seeking research-based master's or doctoral degrees in science,
technology, engineering and math (STEM) disciplines, including the
social sciences. The funds granted for each student per year total
$40,500, including $10,500 for tuition. The program expects to award
between 900 and 1,600 fellowship grants in FY 09, with total available
funds estimated between $36.5 and $65 million. Awards will be granted
in late March, 2009. Eligibility is limited to U.S. citizens,
nationals, or permanent resident aliens.
