The National Science Foundation (NSF) has announced that the 2009 Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) is now open for applications. The GRFP is one of the most prestigious science fellowship programs in the United States, offering future scientific leaders up to three years of graduate support worth $122,500 to each awardee and access to NSF's TeraGrid supercomputing facilities.

The GRFP is intended for students near the beginning of their graduate career, who are seeking research-based Master's or Ph.D. degrees in NSF-supported sciences. The program seeks to ensure the quality, diversity and vitality of the cadre of America's scientists and researchers. Women, minorities, and persons with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply for the GRFP.

The application is available online at www.fastlane.nsf.gov/grfp/ and will close on November 13.

For further information concerning benefits, eligibility, and tips on applying, applicants are encouraged to visit www.nsf.gov/grfp/ or www.nsfgrfp.org.

The NSF-GRFP Operations Center is administered by the American Society for Engineering Education (www.asee.org/fellowships).
