Doctoral Students: Assist NSF with review of survey questions

Attention: Doctoral Students

Do you intend to graduate with your Ph.D. in August 2021, December 2021 or May 2022 (NOT May 2021)?

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is looking for current PhD candidates to provide feedback on survey questions about the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on students’ graduate experience and postgraduation plans. RTI International will conduct a short participant eligibility screening and an interview with eligible, selected PhD students. Upon completion of an interview that lasts about 45 minutes, the participant will receive a $30 cash incentive.

The online screening survey and interviews will take place in January and February 2021. To see if you are eligible for the interview, please complete a short screening survey at For more information about the study, please email
