Are you interested in learning about how to obtain a U.S. government graduate research fellowship for graduate school? If you are a U.S. citizen, you might be eligible for an NSF fellowship (several other fellowships are available for international students). Many government sponsored research fellowship applications are due in early November - so the time to start your application is now.

Presenter: Julie Bliss - a second year masters student in CEE. In 2012 Julie received an award from the prestigious NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program, which supports outstanding graduate students in the STEM fields.
