first three semesters of their graduate program (i.e. have
completed no more than 12 months of full-time graduate study),

When to Apply:
Applications are typically due in early November each year.
The oldest graduate fellowship of its kind, the National Science
Foundation's Graduate Research Fellowship Program grants roughly
950 fellowships a year to students early in their graduate study
in a field regularly supported by the National Science
Foundation. While there are no specific, explicit academic
requirements for the Fellowship, it is quite competitive, and
applicants are expected to be excellent students who hope to go
on to become experts in their chosen field and capable of
first-rate research and/or teaching. While the majority of the
Fellowships go to students studying the Life Sciences or
Engineering, a substantial number are granted each year to
scholars in the Social Sciences, Psychology, Chemistry, Physics,
Computer and Information Science, Geosciences, and Mathematics.
