Through an effort called Graduate Research Opportunities Worldwide (GROW), NSF has expanded and enhanced the ability for GRFs to be hosted by a science agency in a partner country for a period of three to 12 months. While overseas, they can receive a living allowance from the host country as they pursue their research in a host institution. They will also be eligible to receive an international travel allowance from NSF. NSF's goal is to continue to broaden the program over time by bringing in new international partners to expand opportunities. In this video Graduate Research Fellows discuss the advantages of the international research collaborations they undertook as part of their graduate experiences.
