    This workshop will provide effective strategies to prepare a competitive application for the Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP). Sponsored by the National Science Foundation, these awards provide a $32,000 annual stipend for three years to early-career graduate students. This event, intended for students who plan to submit a GRFP application this fall, will include an overview of the GRFP application process, advice from our panel of past GRFP fellowship recipients, and, by request, peer and faculty review of your GRFP draft. Note: You do not need to have a draft of your application developed in order to participate in this workshop.

    Attendance is by application only.  The application is available here and on the GSGS blog. The deadline to submit an application is Thursday, May 15; limited to 15 students.

    This event is co-sponsored by the Graduate School's Office of Professional Development/GrantSearch for Grad Students and by ISSR. Questions? Email GrantSearch for Grad Students at
