2019 NSF GRFP Success Series: How to Write Your GRFP Statements

Tue, Oct 01, 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
/ Location: MRL 2053


Unlike most research fellowships that require detailed proposals that go on for pages, the GRFP requires two short statements that collectively tally five pages. With so much on the line and so little space to address the application’s review criteria, you need to know exactly what goes into these different statements and what evaluators look for in a successful statement.

This NSF GRFP Success Series workshop will break down the two GRFP statements by not only explaining what evaluators look for but also providing you with a framework to write these statements. While we cannot tell you what to write about, we can inform you ​on how to write about your work. This information is essential as the NSF is ​primed to reward applications in ways unique to its ideology. You cannot merely rely on your success from another application format because the NSF is interested in funding more than great research: you and your work must serve a greater good. Let us walk you through this style of writing and prepare you to craft a winning set of statements.

​When:​ ​Tuesday, October 1st, 10-11:30 a.m.
Where: ​Materials Research Lab Building, Room 2053 (MRL 2053)
RSVP here but drop-ins are welcome!
Pizza will be served!
