Graduate College Events for Graduate Students & Postdocs

This summer the Graduate College Office of External Fellowships will host a six-week writing lab to support students in preparing competitive applications for the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program (NSF-GRFP). Participants will benefit from research proposal and personal statement workshops tailored to the NSF-GRFP, focused writing exercises, and structured peer review. 

Mandatory virtual lab meetings will be held weekly 2–4 PM on Thursdays from June 15 to July 20 via Zoom. Participants can also expect to spend 5-10 hours per week on independent writing. Those who participate fully in the lab can expect to produce full drafts of both required statements.

Incoming first-year and rising second-year graduate students, along with undergraduate seniors in all eligible STEM and STEM education fields are welcome to join.

Interested students should confirm that they meet the general eligibility criteria and can commit to attending Thursday meetings. 

Please register by Monday, June 5 to kick-start your summer proposal writing!
