In an era of globalization of research excellence, an international research experience is rapidly becoming an integral part of an outstanding graduate education. Graduate Research Opportunities Worldwide (GROW) is a collaboration between NSF and international partners to provide NSF Graduate Research Fellows with expanded opportunities to enhance professional development through research collaborations at top-caliber science and engineering research sites overseas.

GROW continues research cooperation with counterpart funding organizations in Australia, Austria, Brazil, Chile, Denmark, Finland, France, India, Ireland, Japan, Korea, Netherlands, Norway, Singapore, Sweden and Switzerland. In addition, GROW in 2015-2016 introduces new opportunities in Mexico. Additional partners may be added before the deadline. GROW with USAID is not offered in 2015-2016
