these are two unique Graduate Student Research Opportunities by the National Science Foundation and the Department of Energy.  Please distribute these to your graduate students.  The Office of Sponsored Research and Programs is available to assist students if they should have any questions or need assistance.  Thank you.


National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program ( <https://www.nsfgrfp.org/> NSF GRFP) is now accepting applications.  

The NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) helps ensure the vitality of the human resource base of science and engineering in the United States and reinforces its diversity. The program 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. Each fellowship consists of three years of support during a five year fellowship period.  NSF provides a stipend of $34,000 to the fellow and a cost-of-education allowance of $12,000 to the graduate degree-granting institution for each Fellow who uses the fellowship support in a fellowship year.

NSF especially encourages women, members of underrepresented minority groups, persons with disabilities, veterans and undergraduate seniors to apply. You must be a US citizen, national or permanent resident to apply. Individuals can apply directly. 

Deadlines for the program fall between October 23, 2017 and October 27, 2017,  depending on your area of study. 


 <https://science.energy.gov/wdts/scgsr/eligibility/> Department of Energy, Office of Science now accepting applications for the Science Graduate Research Student Research (SCGSR) program.  

Applications are due November 16, 2017 4:00 PM Central Time.


The goal of the SCGSR program is to prepare graduate students for science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) careers critically important to the DOE Office of Science mission, by providing graduate thesis research opportunities at DOE laboratories.  The SCGSR program provides supplemental awards to outstanding U.S. graduate students to pursue part of their graduate thesis research at a DOE laboratory/facility in areas that address scientific challenges central to the Office of Science mission. The research opportunity is expected to advance the graduate students’ overall doctoral thesis while providing access to the expertise, resources, and capabilities available at the DOE laboratories/facilities.

The Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program is now accepting applications. A sample application can be found  <https://research.iit.edu/sites/research/files/elements/OSRP/pdfs/SCGSR_Instructions.pdf> here
