The National Science Foundation is pleased to offer the Postdoctoral Fellowships for scientists early in their careers to obtain training beyond their graduate education in the USA for the academic session 2022/2023.
The postdoctoral fellowship programme is intended to recognize beginning investigators of significant potential and provide them with experience that will establish them in leadership positions in the scientific community.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) was established by the National Science Foundation Act of 1950. NSF is an independent agency of the United States government that supports fundamental research and education in all the non-medical fields of science and engineering. Its medical counterpart is the National Institutes of Health. The NSF’s scope has expanded over the years to include many areas, not in its initial portfolio, including the social and behavioral sciences, engineering, and science and mathematics education.
Why study at National Science Foundation? National Science Foundation funds research and education in most fields of science and engineering through grants, contracts, and cooperative agreements. The Foundation accounts for about 20 percent of federal support to academic institutions for basic research.
