NSF marked the 60th anniversary of its Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) by announcing Graduate Research Opportunities Worldwide (GROW). The GRFP is NSF's flagship program for graduate students in STEM. At a 60th anniversary celebration, NSF recognized current and past GRFs, and acknowledged the impact of this support on their later work. Secretary of Energy Steven Chu, Nobel Laureate in Physics in 1997 and GRFP recipient in 1970, and Robert Zimmer, president of the University of Chicago, member of the National Science Board and GRFP recipient in 1968, were featured speakers. GROW offers NSF Graduate Research Fellows new opportunities to pursue research abroad.
Through the Graduate Research Fellowship Program, NSF invests in students with demonstrated potential for significant achievements in science and engineering.
