NSF Graduate Research Fellows to Get Stipend Increase (Just Don t Delay)

NEW YORK, Aug. 9 - The National Science Foundation has increased to $21,500 the stipend for its 2003 graduate research fellowships, according to an official at the fellowship program.

 

But scientists applying to next year's fellowships should hurry: the NSF won't be as lenient with late filers as it has been in previous years, the official, Jeannette Bouchard, said.

 

"These are the two biggest changes to the submission guidelines," said Bouchard, who oversees the NSF Graduate Fellowship Program at the Oak Ridge Associated Universities, in Tennessee. This year's stipend was $20,500.

 

She said all other pertinent aspects of the application have not been changed.

 

"The Congress and NSF administrators see the increase in stipends as an important point, and I'd say we'll see even more increases for next year," Bouchard told GenomeWeb. "Just make sure you're on time sending in the application. We've tightened this up."

 

The deadline for submissions is Nov. 7.
