Thanks to everyone who has been sending me new essays to host. Its crazy that my advice page went from only my essays and thoughts to 93 different examples!
I have to give a disclaimer that I haven’t been following changes to the NSF GRFP as closely this past year, but I think that my general advice still holds. If something seems outdated or wrong, please let me know. I always highly recommend getting multiple opinions and I’m glad that many people who have shared their essays are also writing about their experiences. Also check out the Grad Cafe for useful discussions.
Good luck everyone!
