The National Science Foundation (NSF) seeks psychological scientists from a wide range of institutions, geographic locations, and academic backgrounds to serve as 2018 Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) virtual panelists. The GRFP is a longstanding NSF program which supports psychology graduate students, and students from other disciplines, who are pursuing research-based Master’s and doctoral degrees.
According to the GRFP website, eligible panelists include:
• Faculty who work with undergraduate and undergraduate students
• Individuals who conduct research in NSF-supported fields
• Individuals who are able to review interdisciplinary research plans
The 2018 panel process will be conducted exclusively online. Panelists will convene for an orientation session (webinar) in November. Starting in December, panelists will then be granted access to an assigned pool of applications that include short statements, transcripts, and reference letters to read and review online for a period of several weeks. In January, panels will convene online for discussion sessions.
Registering in the panelist system or creating a profile is not a commitment to serving as a GRFP panelist. Based on anticipated needs, NSF will send formal invitations to registered panelists starting in late September.
