    No review comments here.
  2. Did anyone else apply in the February deadline for the GSS DDRI? Just checked Fastlane and saw that my proposal was sent for external review on 4/20/17 and that my program officer changed yesterday, but everything is still pending. I'm imagining another 2-3 weeks before recommendations/rejections start rolling in. Anyone hear anything?

    No transcript request here. I know in the past it has not been clear who gets transcript requests and who doesn't, just that people who do have definitely made it past the first round.
  4. I know this may not be helpful three weeks after your posting, but I'll give it a go anyway. Maybe not directly answering your question, but you might also consider interdisciplinary departments that sort of bleed between the two fields. The first one that came to mind when reading your post was Transborder Studies at ASU (https://sts.asu.edu/node/410). The second is my own department, Global and Sociocultural Studies at FIU. I'm not super familiar with ASU's program and it seems to have a heavy focus on the Southwest US, but it might be worth looking into. In my program, there are a
  5. Hi all, I was just notified today that I am a finalist for the aforementioned fellowship. I was wondering if anyone on the board has had one or interviewed for one and can give some insights into the interview process. I've contacted one of the previous fellows that I know to get info and will happily share that here when I hear back from them.
  6. I had completely forgotten about this until today. I haven't heard anything from the CO and she's notoriously bad at responding to emails. Did anyone's application status change in G5?
  7. Got my comments today. Mostly positive. One reviewer thought I should have a more developed theoretical perspective. One reviewer thought I should have focused more geographically. (This is interesting considering everyone I know who has been awarded has larger geographic area than I do now and had even larger ones when they were awarded. I'll chalk it up to people not realizing how small the country I work in actually is. It's a good thing to address in future applications regardless.) One reviewer loved everything about it. Reading reviews is frustrating.
  8. Congrats blueridge! Penn State is an amazing program.
  9. Contact them to "update your application materials" and let them know you were awarded the NSF. It's a significant enough award that it won't seem like you are pressing them with a useless update.
  10. Didn't get it. Second year. VG/VG VG/VG G/G The third reviewer wanted the project to be more completely developed than it was, which I agree with. All three reviewers mentioned strong letters of recommendation and academic engagement outside of the department and university.

    Who is a historian?

    I use an historical in oral presentations when a historical might be ambiguous to someone not listening intently (i.e., they might hear ahistorical.) I try to change it in writing but it sometimes slips.
  12. It's only just beginning. I'm still not even convinced that it's going to be tonight.
  13. Add geographers to that as well. His being given an award by the AAG caused quite a bit of consternation. Toward the discussion more generally, as I work in climate change I tend to cross disciplinary lines fairly often. My experience has been that it really depends on the context. I (human geographer) am currently working on a paper with an anthropologist, field biologist, biogeochemist, and freshwater ecologist and it's been going well. There is a mutual respect for everyone's insight and we work together productively. Our paper rests on our interdisciplinarity and we draw on it to ta
  14. @HockeyNerd, there are people who got HM one year who got nothing (not even HM again) so it's certainly not a given. You are judged to higher standards in subsequent years, not just in terms of your project but also in terms of your ability to craft a convincing proposal.
  15. DDRI and GRFP results aren't necessarily released at the same time. OP was asking about the DDRI.
