The National Science Foundation (NSF) has announced that 650 fellowships will be awarded next spring for advanced study in science, mathematics, and engineering, including interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary areas. The fellowships are available to citizens and nationals of the United States and will be awarded on the basis of merit for full-time study. Fellowships are available in three categories, including 540 graduate fellowships, 60 minority graduate fellowships, and 50 North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) postdoctoral fellowships.

The graduate fellowships include a stipend of $11,000 for a 12-month tenure and a cost of-education allowance of up to $6,000 per year to be provided to the educational institution in lieu of tuition and fee charges.
