The NSF PROMISE AGEP, the Graduate School at UMBC, along with the USM Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) and LSAMP Bridge to the Doctorate programs (LSAMP-BD) are sponsoring another award-winning preparation seminar for  the National Science Foundation’s NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (NSF GRFP). The fellowship is worth more than $100,000.

Fellows share in the prestige and opportunities that become available when they are selected. Fellows benefit from a three-year annual stipend of $34,000 along with a $12,000 cost of education allowance for tuition and fees (paid to the institution), opportunities for international research and professional development, and the freedom to conduct their own research at any accredited U.S. institution of graduate education they choose.
