Dear Colleague Letter - NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) Graduate Research Opportunities Worldwide (GROW)

Short Description:

The purpose of this Dear Colleague Letter is to announce the GRFP's Graduate Research Opportunities Worldwide (GROW). Through GROW, NSF Graduate Fellows are provided an international travel allowance to engage in research collaborations with investigators in partner countries located outside the United States.

With GROW, NSF Graduate Fellows can benefit from partnerships developed by NSF with funding organizations in other countries to develop international research collaborations. For the last four years, GRFP has offered a pilot international research opportunity in cooperation with counterpart funding organizations in Norway, Finland, Denmark and Sweden, known as the Nordic Research Opportunity. GROW continues the Nordic opportunity with Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden and introduces new partnership opportunities to NSF Graduate Research Fellows in France, Japan, South Korea and Singapore.

Details for each partner country differ and are available through links to their websites, grouped by geographic region, and accessed at: As additional countries develop GROW partnerships with NSF, information for those countries will be added to the website to facilitate future planning.
