Seven NSF fellowships go to CSU students

Four Colorado State University graduating seniors and three graduate students have received National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowships this year.

The NSF-GRFP provides a three-year annual stipend of $34,000, along with a $12,000 cost-of-education allowance for tuition and fees (paid to the institution). It includes opportunities for international research and professional development, and the freedom to conduct research at any accredited U.S. graduate education institution.

This year, the NSF received nearly 17,000 applicants and gave 2,000 awards.

Applications for Fall 2017 are due in October and November. Contact Mary Swanson at for more information.
