GRFP Fellows and Coordinating Officials

The updated NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) Administrative Guide is now available. It contains information on requirements and guidance on the administration and facilitation of GRFP Fellowships, and details the responsibilities of both the Fellow and their GRFP awardee institution to ensure a successful tenure within the program. For all Fellows (New and Continuing) and GRFP awardee institutions, acceptance of NSF funds indicates acceptance of and adherence to the award Terms and Conditions. New Fellows, Current Fellows, and Coordinating Officials are expected to familiarize themselves with the Administrative Guide.
