  • “Writing Personal Statements - NSF GRFP Workshop”


The NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) Workshop is offered to first- or second-year STEM graduate students, in order to teach proposal-writing skills, with the goal of applying to the NSF GRFP. Senior undergraduate students are welcome to attend as well. The program is supported by the Graduate School, the Division of Biology & Biomedical Sciences, and the School of Engineering & Applied Science at Washington University and has events on both the Medical School and Danforth campuses. The workshop consists of two seminars and small group meetings.
The second seminar in the workshop will be hosted by The Writing Center at Washington University and will focus on how to write personal statements and other essays for your applications. At this seminar, students can sign up for one-on-one sessions with writing mentors through The Writing Center to get help with their drafts.
