Concerning GRIP Program
Because of the flexibility and benefits that INTERN now offers to Graduate Research Fellows and internship host organizations, NSF will suspend the next GRIP competition. Information on INTERN funding for Graduate Research Fellows (GRFP) is available in the DCL (https://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2021/nsf21013/nsf21013.jsp). Additional information on specific terms and conditions for INTERN supplements to NSF GRFP awards can be requested by sending an email to GRFP INTERN: GRFPINTERN@nsf.gov.
