On Tuesday, September 9th, the CIE, in conjunction with The Graduate School and The SUNY Research Foundation, hosted Writing to Win, a panel to familiarize students with the process of preparing a competitive application for the National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP). The panel was comprised of past and current NSF GRFP Fellows, including Dr. Susan Brennan, Professor in the Department of Psychology, Dr. Cindy Leiton, Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Anesthesiology, and Stephen Lee, Doctoral Student in the Department of Biomedical Engineering.
The NSF GRFP supports outstanding graduate students in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines who are pursuing research-based master’s and doctoral degrees. The panel was well attended, with 70 undergraduate and graduate students getting the opportunity to learn about the general application requirements, the panelists personal journeys to becoming NSF GRFP Fellows, and the application review process.
