Science News article The National Science Foundation is trying to make the transition from a full-time university into a graduate school with a few tricks to help it move forward.
The foundation has awarded six grants to universities across the country that aim to use the $50,000 grant it awards annually to train and equip students in the sciences, according to an NSC news release.
The six grants will be awarded by the NSC Research, Education, and Science Council.
These include grants for graduate students in neuroscience, biomedical engineering, biotechnology, and other fields.
The grants will cover a period of three to four years.
They are not available for use until 2021.
The grant will allow a university to spend up to two years in a graduate program and graduate students to complete their Ph.
D. at the end of their program.
The program is being launched at the University of Maryland.
The NSC’s Science Research Fellows program provides support to scientists in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields through the National Science Council, which oversees the NSF grant.
The grant was established in the 1970s, when the NSFWC was established as a means to support graduate programs at colleges and universities.
The NSFWCs aim to ensure that all students have access to science and engineering education.
The grants are intended to make sure all students graduate with an education in science, engineering and mathematics, the N SC said in a news release last year.
The National Science Board is one of the four major agencies that oversees the NSTEM grants, and is the lead agency for the program.
The other two agencies are the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Department of Energy (DOE).
The NSF is one the largest federal agencies for awarding research grants.
The NSC has awarded more than $2.2 billion in grants since it was established.
