Great Funding Opportunity for 1st & 2nd Year Students

From the Director of the Mathematics Division at the NSF:

The National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines who are pursuing research-based Master’s and doctoral degrees at accredited United States institutions. The program provides up to three years of support, including an annual $34,000 stipend, for the graduate education of individuals who have demonstrated their potential for significant achievements in science and engineering research. In the years 2013 through 2015, GRFP awards in the mathematical sciences were given to students who earned baccalaureate degrees from the 99 institutions listed below.

The GRFP awards approximately 2,000 new fellowships each year. However, participation by the mathematical sciences community has been relatively low, and fewer than 4% of the fellowships currently go to students doing research in areas supported by the NSF Division of Mathematical Sciences (DMS.)

This is a great opportunity for the mathematical sciences community. US citizens and permanent residents who are planning to enter graduate school in an NSF-supported discipline next fall, or in the first two years of such a graduate program, or who are returning to graduate school after being out for two or more years, are eligible. Applications for Mathematical Sciences topics are due October 30. The applicant information page ( and the program solicitation ( contain the necessary details.
