Posted on 1/28/2016 2:01:46 PM

Victor Garcia, director of MARTI and professor of anthropology, recently reviewed applications for the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) as a member of the Cultural Anthropology and Linguistics Panel. Garcia has reviewed as a member of the panel since 2003.  

As the oldest fellowship program, the purpose of the GRFP is to help ensure the vitality of the human resource base of science and engineering while reinforcing its diversity. The competitive program strives to support graduate students who are pursuing science and engineering research-based master’s and doctoral degrees. As part of the fellowship, graduate students receive three years of support, including a $34,000 stipend and a $12,000 cost-of-education allowance to a graduate degree-granting institution.

More information on the program can be found on the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program website.
