National Science Foundation Graduate Research Opportunities Worldwide (GROW)
Following an agreement between Universities Australia and the National Science Foundation (NSF), all UA member universities are eligible to host American research fellows for between three and twelve months as part of the GROW program.
The program allows Australian universities to access the high-quality researchers that are currently NSF Graduate Research Fellows (GRF) and gives researchers valuable experience at Australia’s world-class universities.
The NSF will provide travel allowances to cover travel and research costs associated with the international research collaboration. Additional support to cover in-country living expenses will be provided by the host university through a monthly stipend to value of AUD 2,500, or equivalent in-kind support. Acceptance is subject to the availability of institutional funds and capacity of host staff.
Potential applicants are advised to make their host institution aware of the obligation to provide this support, should the host university accept your application.
