University of Nebraska-Lincoln graduate students are invited to a Feb. 17 webinar and panel discussion to learn about applying for National Research Service Award fellowship grants from the National Institutes of Health. Registration is required.

Husker students who are in advanced stages of their studies may qualify for NRSA F31 awards, designed to provide an assistantship stipend and research support to graduate students conducting basic and applied research in the biomedical, behavioral or clinical sciences, or health services fields.

Hosted by the Office of Research and Economic Development and the Office of Graduate Studies, the webinar is noon to 1 p.m. CST. Only registered participants will receive a link to view the presentation and participate in the discussion.

A panel discussion will offer tips and advice for developing successful NRSA proposals, led by current graduate students who have received F31 funding. Participants are encouraged to ask questions and engage in an open dialogue with their peers. The panelists are Shaina Kumar and Erin Ramsdell, both of Nebraska, and María Luisa Torruella Suárez, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.   For more information, contact Rick Bevins, interim associate vice chancellor for research, or Lisa Maupin, events and outreach coordinator.
