Preparing for NSF Graduate Research Fellowship (Workshop, August 30, 2022)

Seeking funding to support graduate studies via federal grants is a challenge. This workshop focuses on the highly competitive and prestigious NSF Graduate Research Fellowship (GRF) program. Eligibility criteria will be discussed. The workshop will provide the audience with tips and tricks about the application, including common application requirements, best writing practices, building a timeline, among others.

The Perspective of NSF Graduate Research Fellows (Panel, September 6, 2022)

This activity is the second one related to NSF Graduate Research Fellowship applications. The panelists are recent awardees of this highly competitive national program. Richard Rodríguez, Bianca Dávila, and Alexandra Ramos are recent UPRM graduates who went through the application process and can provide tips and reflect on the endeavor.

Seeking federal funding to support graduate studies can be challenging. For instance, the NSF Graduate Research Fellowships (GRF) is a highly competitive and prestigious grant available to US citizens or US residents.
