Graduate Research Opportunities Worldwide
In an era of globalization of research excellence, an international research experience is rapidly becoming an integral part of an outstanding graduate education. Graduate Research Opportunities Worldwide (GROW) is a partnership between NSF and international funding agencies to provide NSF Graduate Research Fellows with expanded opportunities to enhance professional development through research collaborations at top-caliber science and engineering research sites overseas.
GROW continues research cooperation with counterpart funding organizations in Norway, Finland, Denmark and Sweden, previously known as the Nordic Research Opportunity. In addition, GROW introduces new partnership opportunities to Graduate Research Fellows in France, Japan, South Korea and Singapore.
