The new internship initiative expands opportunities for NSF Graduate Fellows to enhance their professional development by engaging in mission related research experiences with partner agencies across the federal government. GRIP is open only to NSF Graduate Fellows, recipients of the Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) award.
Through this initiative, NSF Graduate Fellows will participate in mission-related, collaborative research under the guidance of host research mentors at federal facilities and national laboratories. The internship experiences will support Fellows with developing expertise in critical STEM areas, enhancing professional skills, developing networks, and preparing for a wide array of career options. The sponsor agencies will benefit by engaging Fellows in mission-critical projects, helping to develop a highly skilled U.S. workforce in areas of national need.
NSF is pleased to collaborate with other federal agencies to provide internship opportunities through GRIP. Internship details for each partner agency differ and are available through links to agency websites. In the first year of the program, research internship opportunities are available through the Office of Naval Research (ONR), the Smithsonian Institution, and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). As additional agencies develop internship partnerships with NSF, updates will be made to the website.
For more information, please visit the GRIP page on the NSF website.
GROW is open to active awardees of the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program. Active NSF Graduate Fellows are those fellows who are within their five-year fellowship term, “on tenure” or “on reserve.” NSF Graduate Fellows that have completed 3 years of tenure must request to be on reserve for 1-2 additional years to be eligible for GROW. Through GROW, NSF Graduate Fellows are provided an international travel allowance to engage in research collaborations with investigators in partner countries located outside the United States.
With GROW, NSF Graduate Fellows can benefit from partnerships developed by NSF with funding organizations in other countries. Building on the experience of the former Nordic Research Opportunity, GROW offers research opportunities of 3-12 months in duration.
For more information (including a list of partner countries), please visit the GROW page on the NSF website.
