NSF graduate fellowship awards


  • Anonymous


Of the 500 college students being offered fellowships by the National Science Foundation (NSF) this year for graduate study in the natural and social sciences, about 8% plan to pursue graduate studies in earth, ocean, or space sciences. In addition, 3 of the 55 students offered NSF Minority Graduate Fellowship Awards plan to study earth or space sciences.

Each fellowship, awarded for 3 years of graduate study, provides a stipend of $6900 per year for full-time graduate study. The fellowships may be used over 5 years to permit students to incorporate teaching or research assistantships into their education during periods in which they are not receiving their fellowship stipends.
