The Fall Application Development Program supports students applying for the Hertz Fellowship, the Ford Predoctoral Fellowship, and the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship, opportunities for undergraduate seniors, first-year graduate students, and second-year graduate students. If you are applying for another fellowship, we recommend that you get assistance from our Graduate Writing Tutors.
The purpose of the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) is to help ensure the vitality and diversity of the scientific and engineering workforce in the United States. The program is an excellent source of funding for graduate students – providing awardees with $37,000 annually for three years, as well as additional benefits. NSF Fellows at the University of Arizona receive full tuition, mandatory fees, student health insurance for the Fellow, and a $500 travel grant during tenured years. For more information, please review the NSF GRFP website.
If you have reviewed your eligiblity and plan to apply for the Hertz, Ford, or NSF GRFP, please register for our Fall Application Development Program.
