The summer application development program offers two tracks: Track one: for students developing NSF GRFP applications Track two: for students developing Fulbright graduate research applications The program runs from June 5-10th and applications for both tracks are due on May 25th. Track I The Office of National Scholarships and Fellowships (ONSF) is conducting a workshop series that will present NSF GRFP information and provide structured practice to develop a competitive GRFP application. In this workshop, graduate students (and a select number of undergraduate students) from NSF eligible fields will participate in a 5-part series that will include an overview of the GRFP and application process, first-hand advice from GRFP recent awardees and 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. Please note that participation is limited to 20 students. Acceptance is based on minimum criteria outlined in the application and the quality of the submitted application.
