Awards carry a $34,000 stipend for 12-month tenures plus a cost-of-education allowance of $12,000 per tenure year. NSF made 2,000 award offers following the 2016 competition. 

All awards are for a maximum of three years usable over a five-year period. Award announcements are made in early April of 2019.
