The GSGP will provide supplemental funding for one year of study. Recipients of GSGP grants will have the option to re-apply for an additional two awards after the first year of the original grant. Applicants seeking grant renewals must submit a new application for the year for which they are re-applying. The total number of years a recipient may hold a GSGP grant is three years.
