24 June | Graduate Assistance in Areas of National Need (GAANN)



Program provides grants to academic departments and programs of institutions of higher education (IHEs) to support graduate fellowships for students with excellent academic records in their previous programs of study who demonstrate financial need and plan to pursue the highest degree available in their course of study at the institution. This notice contains one absolute priority, two competitive preference priorities, and one invitational priority.

  • Absolute priority: the project must provide fellowships for programs that lead either to a master’s degree or a doctoral degree, whichever is the highest degree awarded in the area of need at the institution. The academic areas include computer and information science, bioengineering, civil engineering, computer engineering, electrical engineering, and mechanical engineering.
  • Competitive priority 1: the applicant does not have an active grant under the GAANN program.
  • Competitive priority 2: the applicant will be implemented by a minority serving institution.
  • Invitational priority: the project will increase the number of low-income students in graduate fellowships.
