The MSU AGEP Program is conducting a workshop series that will present NSF GRFP program information and provide structured practice to create competitive GRFP application. The MSU workshop is based on similar workshops at other universities that have resulted in an increase in the number of successful GRFP applications. In the MSU workshop, STEM undergraduate and graduate students will participate in a 5-part series that will include an overview of the GRFP and application process, first-hand advice from GRFP reviewers and recent awardees, and two interactive sessions to review and revise their application documents. The workshop will also provide a timeline and guidance for requesting recommendation letters. In addition to preparing a more competitive GRFP application, workshop participants will gain experience drafting a research outline and conveying their research to broad audiences.
The third workshop in this series will be a panel of current GRFP Fellows and recent GRFP reviewers. The panelists will share their advice on what makes competitive applications and answer questions. The panel will cover all aspects of the application but will pay particular attention to the personal statement of the application package. The panel will be live-streamed to participating universities.
