NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program Workshops Announced

NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program

Dr. Kelly Barry will hold three workshops on the Homewood campus and three workshops on the East Baltimore campus this semester for seniors and first year graduate students applying for the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP). This fellowship offers three years of support for advanced study in the mathematical, physical, biological, engineering, and behavioral and social sciences, including the history of science and the philosophy of science, and to research-based Ph.D. degrees in science education at accredited U.S. institutions. The workshops will focus on the personal statement in the context of the “broader impacts” and “intellectual merit” criteria. The dates/times are:
