NSF Graduate Fellows Get a Chance to Work Oversees

Writing for ScienceInsider, our sister blog, Science Careers writer Michael Price describes a new program from the U.S. National Science Foundation:

Yesterday, NSF officials unveiled the Graduate Research
Opportunities Worldwide (GROW) program as part of a celebration of the
60th anniversary of its
Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP). Launched in 1952 as the
agency’s flagship effort to strengthen U.S. graduate training in the
sciences, GRFP
has funded more than 46,500 budding scientists, including 40
eventual Nobel Prize winners.

The GROW program is intended to address the increasingly
international scope of research, said NSF Director Subra Suresh. “Global
enterprise doesn’t have any borders,” he said. “Innovation doesn’t have any borders. Funding doesn’t have any borders.”
