2020 NSF GRFP Success Series: Sample Statements Writing Workshop

Thu, Sep 17 2020, 5:00 PM - 06:30 PM
/ Location: Zoom


There is a world of difference between being told what your writing should look like and being shown what it should look like. This is because examples make learning a new skill much easier to recognize and practice. This workshop will provide that help by going over examples of successful statements from all levels (undergraduate and graduate applications across multiple disciplines).

This will not simply be a workshop where handouts are distributed. Led by the university’s Graduate Writing Specialist, this NSF GRFP Success Series workshop will focus on breaking down the underlying features within the samples. Learn how to present a knowledge gap in your introduction. Explore how to craft strong transition statements that connect your research goals to broader impacts. While there is no one way to write an NSF GRFP statement, there is a pattern to how successful applications model themselves to hit all the essential criteria. Come learn how other writers have done this to excel with your own application.

When: Thursday, September 17th, 5–6:30 P.M.
Where: Zoom (RSVP to receive the link)

Over $100 in gift cards and prizes will be raffled off each session!
