The National Science Foundation EPSCoR Graduate Fellowship Program (EGFP) is a new program that provides an opportunity for applicants who received the distinction of Honorable Mention in the existing NSF Graduate Research Fellowship (GRFP) program to obtain financial support for their graduate education at an institution in an EPSCoR jurisdiction.

EGFP aims to enhance the capacity and competitiveness of EPSCoR jurisdictions by providing funding to graduate degree-awarding institutions to support NSF EPSCoR Graduate Fellows as they pursue graduate STEM degrees. Fellows may pursue degrees in a field that differs from the field or sub-field of study that the GRFP Honorable Mention recipients previously listed in their GRFP application. 

Please read the solicitation, NSF 24-588, for more information:

Those interested in submitting to the October 2, 2024 deadline should look at Section II (Program Description) for the specific STEM topics and areas eligible for this program. Questions about EGFP should be directed to NSF Program Director, Jeanne Small (
