The National Science Foundation is increasing its funding opportunities for young researchers. Georgia Tech has three NSF Graduate Research Fellowship information sessions scheduled to assist students as they plan for their November applications.

Students eligible to apply in November are seniors, first-year graduate students, and second-year graduate students who have not completed MORE than 12 months of graduate work. (August to August is 12 months. When students apply in November, they have not completed MORE than 12 months.) Awards are $30,000 a year for three years of graduate study plus $10,500 each year to the university to go toward tuition, and $1000 for travel to an international conference. NSF awards can be deferred up to two years. Students are encouraged to work on their three NSF essays this summer and can contact Dr. Karen Adams in the Fellowship Office for information (Karen.firstname.lastname@example.org).
