NSF to host Graduate Research Fellowship Program workshop at TTU Oct. 18

The National Science Foundation Division of Graduate Education, in collaboration with TN-SCORE, will host a Graduate Research Fellowship Program workshop at Tennessee Tech University Friday, Oct. 18.

The workshop is for undergraduate seniors and early career graduate students who wish to pursue graduate study leading to research-based master's and doctoral degrees in the fields of science and engineering within the mission of the National Science Foundation. Visit www.nsfgrfp.org for more information on the program.

“Each fellowship consists of three years of financial support over a five-year period, including a $30,000 annual stipend and $12,000 annual cost-of-education,” said Francis Otuonye, associate vice president for research at TTU. “This is one of the most prestigious national fellowships available to students, and TTU is very delighted to host a workshop that prepares students to compete for the awards.”

Faculty advisers and fellowship advisers are encouraged to attend the workshops as well to discuss how they can encourage students to apply and how they can help applicants compete for these fellowships.

There will be morning and afternoon workshops, both in the Tech Pride Room of the Roaden University Center, 1000 N. Dixie Ave., on TTU’s campus. Additional details will be available to participants after registration.
