The Graduate Research Fellowship (GRF) is designed to help meet the continuing needs of the aeronautics and space effort by increasing the number of highly trained scientists and engineers in aerospace, space science, space applications and space technology. The GRF Program awards assistantships for graduate study leading to research-based masters or doctoral degrees in the fields of science, mathematics, and engineering.
Fellowship money awarded by the SC Space Grant Consortium will be administered through the your institution’s Grants and Sponsored Programs Offices. Indirect charges (IDCs) are NOT ALLOWED on any SC Space Grant student awards. A maximum of $16,000 will be awarded from the SC Space Grant Consortium, which must be matched 1:1 by the host institution with non-federal funds, the total being applied toward a graduate assistantship, totaling $32,000. In an effort to make the fellowship prestigious, one with the potential to attract and hold the best and brightest students, a requirement is that the stipend amount of $26,000 out of $32,000. A signature from the official responsible for committing the institution is required for the application.
All applicants must be either full-time graduate students enrolled in an accredited consortium member institution or an applicant for full time admission to a Masters or Doctorate program in an accredited consortium member institution. Applicants must be citizens of the U.S. (see U.S. citizenship requirements here). An individual accepting this award may not concurrently receive other Federal fellowships or traineeships. Underrepresented minorities, women, and persons with disabilities are strongly urged to apply.
