The 2020 Workshop is only open to those applying to the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GFRP).

The Fellowship Writing Workshop is designed to assist eligible undergraduate and  graduate students with their written proposals through step-by-step guidance, and a series of online lectures and mentored sessions.

How it Works

This workshop is divided into three sections, each with individual milestones that should be completed before advancing to the next.


Fill in “knowledge gaps” in your field of study and learn more about the Graduate Research Fellowship Program.


Draft your application statements and attend a web-based lecture from The Writing Center.


Participate in faculty-led, small group sessions and prepare to submit your application.
