Calling all Rising Seniors Considering Grad School

Thinking about grad school for the future? As you enter your senior year, I want to make you aware of the National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship, which provides a $34,000 stipend and tuition coverage each year for three years. It’s the best way to fund your masters or PhD! Students in a variety of STEM and social science fields are allowed to apply as senior undergraduates and undergraduate applicants have a greater chance of winning than current graduate students.

The Fellowship Office at Purdue is here to advise you on your NSF application writings. We’re here to help you get started over the summer with as little stress as possible!  

To start preparing your application, attend the upcoming webinar info sessions, which are offered as three webinars in two different sequences with the same content. Pick whichever time suites your schedule.  

May webinars during Wednesday lunch time: 

June webinars on Tuesday evenings: 

The NSF Fellowship is open to US citizens and permanent residents, but everyone is welcome to attend the webinars because the information can be used to apply for other graduate fellowships.
