Event Description

The National Science Foundation's Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) provides selected fellows with three years of funding, including a living stipend and tuition funds, to support the research phase of their doctoral degree in STEM, social sciences, or STEM education. The current application cycle is open to US citizens and permanent residents planning to begin a research-focused graduate program in Fall 2024, or who will be in the 1st or 2nd year of a PhD program in Fall 2023.

This third of four GRFP application workshops will guide you through essential dimensions of writing a strong personal statement, including how to select content, define a structure, and reflect meaningfully on your experiences. You do not need to have attended the previous workshop to benefit from this one! You can find preparatory materials for this workshop, as well as materials from the previous workshop, at https://drexel0.sharepoint.com/sites/Pennoni-UREP-Public/Fellowships/SitePages/NSF-GRFP-Workshops-and-Events.aspx

An in-person version of this workshop will be offered on Friday, August 4. Both sessions of workshop 3 will cover the same material; there is no need to attend both.

Register on Zoom to attend.

Events with no registrants 24 hrs in advance will be cancelled.
