NSF Graduate Research Fellowships

Congratulations to the current and future UW engineering graduate students who applied for and were awarded NSF graduate research fellowships beginning autumn 2013!

These awards are very prestigious. NSF Fellows are anticipated to become knowledge experts who can contribute significantly to research, teaching, and innovations in science and engineering.

Each year, additional NSF fellows from other baccalaureate institutions come to the UW for graduate studies. We will list them when their UW acceptance becomes finalized.

Big Benefits

Fellows benefit from a three-year annual stipend of $30,000 along with a $12,000 cost of education allowance for tuition and fees, and the freedom to conduct their own research at any accredited U.S., or foreign institution of graduate education they choose.
