NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL OFFICE OF INVESTIGATIONS CLOSEOUT MEMORANDUM Case Number: A12090065 Page 1 of 1 Our office received an allegation that an institution1 required fellows to take a teaching assistantship (TA) and pay tuition and fees, thereby violating the policies of the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP). 2 It was also alleged that the institution limited the amount of credits the fellows can take. We requested and received information and documentation from the institution. Our review of the matter determined that the institution acted within NSF and GRFP guidelines.
