NSF currently invests in a number of graduate student preparedness activities and has historically encouraged principal investigators (PIs) to include such activities in research proposals to NSF. This Dear Colleague Letter (DCL) describes new commitments and funding opportunities at NSF to ensure graduate students are prepared for the 21st-century STEM workforce.
Information on this DCL is available here: Non-Academic Research Internships for Graduate Students (INTERN): https:///pubs/2017/nsf17091/ .
This internship opportunity is available as a supplement to NSF grants awarded by the Directorate for Education and Human Resources (EHR), Directorate for Engineering (ENG), and Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure (OAC) within the Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE). Grantees are encouraged to include NSF Graduate Research Fellows and Honorable Mentions in their proposals.
