Our financial aid package consists of scholarships, fellowships, research assistantships and loans. The aid is intended to attract well-qualified students. Depending on the degree program, we consider ability and financial need as independent factors in determining awards. All awards are contingent upon the availability of funds, continued satisfactory performance and satisfactory academic progress.


The NSF GRFP recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students in NSF-supported STEM disciplines who are pursuing research-based master's and doctoral degrees at accredited US institutions. Learn about previous recipients and how Guarini supports eligible applicants with proposal development.
