The National Research Council of the National Academies announces the 2013 Graduate, Postdoctoral and Senior Research Associateship Programs to be conducted on behalf of federal research laboratories and affiliated institutions in over 100 locations throughout the United States.  These programs provide opportunities for Ph.D., Sc.D., or M.D. scientists and engineers of unusual promise and ability to perform research on problems largely of their own choosing, yet compatible with the research interests of the sponsoring laboratory.

Full-time Associateships will be awarded on a competitive basis in 2013 for research in the fields of chemistry; earth, atmospheric and space sciences; engineering, applied sciences and computer science; life and medical sciences; mathematics; and physics.  Many of the laboratories are open to both U.S. citizens and foreign nationals.

Awards are made for one or two years, renewable for a maximum of three years; senior applicants who have held the doctorate at least five years maybe receive awards for shorter periods.  Annual stipends for recent Ph.D. recipients for the 2013 program year range from $42,000 to $80,000 depending upon the sponsoring laboratory, and are appropriately higher for senior award recipients.  Graduate entry level stipends begin at $30,000.

Contact with the Research Adviser/mentor at the proposed sponsoring laboratory, including discussion of the proposed project, is necessary prior to submitting a formal application to the NRC.  Detailed program information, including instructions on how to apply online, is available on the NRC website at:  Questions should be directed to the National Research Council of the National Academies Fellowship Programs Office, Associateship Programs, 202-334-2760 or

This event is designed to help IU’s Fulbright-Hays applicants improve their proposals through a structured peer-review format workshop.




Bring two copies of your most recent Fulbright-Hays proposal draft, read about and comment on some fascinating research, and leave with two sets of peer feedback. GGC staff will spend about fifteen minutes giving participants a brief overview of how to critique a proposal. Then we will pair participants up and issue comment forms, so feedback falls into similar categories—this will make your revisions easier. From there, we turn things over to you as you read and comment on your partner’s proposal. Consultants will be available to address participant questions. Discussion of comments and revisions will follow. The workshop will take place in two rounds, with a short break in between. The schedule looks something like this:


10:00-10:15—kickoff, workshop orientation

10:15-11:00—proposal review

11:00-11:30—discussion of comments

11:30-11:45—Break (there’s a café downstairs)

11:45-1:30—lather, rinse, and repeat round 1.

Please get in touch with us if you have any questions or if you would like to RSVP. Good luck with the drafting process!
