Forty-four graduate students have been selected as new National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program (NSF GRFP) fellows. These new fellows join Cornell’s community of nearly 200 fellows currently on campus.

The NSF offers approximately 2,000 fellowships per year to research-based master’s and doctoral students pursuing study in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering and math disciplines at accredited U.S. institutions. In 2020, the NSF GRFP received over 13,000 applications.

As part of the five-year fellowship, students receive three years of financial support including an annual stipend of $34,000, as well as access to professional development opportunities. Fellows’ institutions receive a cost of education allowance of $12,000.
