Christian Cazares, Neurosciences Ph.D. student: Understanding the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Application

Intro: The NSF-GRFP recognizes and supports graduate students in STEM or in STEM education with three years of financial support throughout their graduate years. However, writing a competitive application requires an understanding of their review criteria: Broader Impacts and Intellectual Merit. Join us for a discussion on how to address these and other aspects of the application that could give you a competitive edge as an undergraduate, post-baccalaureate, or a first-year graduate student.
