    NSF GRFP 2017-18

    Hi all, were we supposed to get some sort of confirmation email after we accepted the award? I accepted on Friday and didn't get any notification. I guess I'm just being a little paranoid that the deadline is going to pass and I find out I accidentally didn't accept the award

    Just found out I got it! April 13, 2018 Dear ________: It is a pleasure to inform you that you have been selected to receive the 2018 National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate (NDSEG) Fellowship Award. This fellowship is awarded to you in recognition of your academic excellence and Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) achievements, from over 3600 applications that were received this year. Program Awardees receive full tuition and all mandatory fees coverage for up to three years at any accredited U.S. college or university that provides advanced degrees in science and engineering, and a monthly stipend of $3200. In addition, Fellows receive up to $1200 annually for health insurance coverage, and up to two trips (all expenses paid based on the government travel policy per year for training and/or conferences that support their educational initiatives). The NDSEG Fellowship Program is sponsored by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), the Army Research Office (ARO), and Office of Naval Research (ONR) under the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering, OUSD (R&E). This program is administered by Solutions Through Innovative Technologies, Inc. (STI-TEC). Please indicate your acceptance of this Fellowship by signing the NDSEG Fellowship Terms of Award (See Attachment). We must receive your signed terms of appointment no later than May 1, 2018. Upon acceptance, you will also need to complete all forms in the Awardee package along with the form linked below, and upload all documents by June 1st.

    How many people have heard from CSGF?

    Anyone not heard back yet? I'm assuming I didn't get it since I know acceptances went out already, but the waiting always makes me anxious

    So... I'm in a [funding] pickle. Help!

    I can't help, but I would strongly recommend asking this on the academia stackexchange (with specific schools and identifying info removed). The people there would be in a pretty good position to help you as most of them are either faculty or senior grad students.

    They seem kind of disorganized lol. If the final panel review ended yesterday, surely they must already have two lists of applicants corresponding to who moved on and who didn't, and it should just be a matter of emailing those lists all at once...

    Not KaffeeCafe, but mine only had my name and major field, so I checked yes and just added the other fields. I am almost positive I put this information down in my original application though, especially my current institution.

    Nothing on my end. Maybe it's an email sent to senior undergrads requesting to know what school they've chosen? Either way, sounds like you're still in consideration! Edit: I just received the email as well. Not sure why they're asking to be honest...

    This is the full text of the email: Dear ___, Thank you for applying to the NDSEG Fellowship Program, we accepted over 3600 applications for the 2018 Fellowship Class. Just a reminder, we are still accepting GRE Scores, Transcripts and References until January 5, 2018. Please keep in mind as we upload these documents into your profiles, correspondence via email and phone might be delayed due to the volume. The next steps in the process are: The application packet review by our Subject Matter Experts in February, who will choose the top forty percent. The top forty percent will then go to the DoD panel review starting in March, who will make the final selection of 200 fellows for the 2018 Fellowship Class. Notifications to Awardees will be sent in April. To plan for Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) throughout the federal government, all programs must capture race and national origin (RNO) Data. To provide this data, please click on this link: Click Here to Open EEO Form When you complete the form and save, it will automatically post to your file. Please note, providing this information is voluntary and has no impact on your selection status. In addition, we encourage you to join our social media sites if you haven't already, you may go to the website to join: www.ndsegfellowships.org. We will be posting STEM information on a regular basis. Thank you for your interest in the NDSEG Fellowship and best of luck to you! Sincerely, NDSEG Fellowship Team --- They never explicitly stated 1400, but they said they received over 3600 applications this year in the update email sent on March 16th, so if the 40% figure is to be believed, then approximately 1400 applicants would have made it to the DoD panel review. That seems like a pretty large number to me, and they assembled subject matter experts to only cut out slightly more than half of the applications, but who knows at this point?

    I think the January email went to most people's spam folders (it was in mine, and I only saw it in February). The 40% figure seems kind of off to me, but who knows...

    I re-read the email they sent out in January, and it says that the subject matter experts will select the top 40%. They said 3600 people applied, so that's about 1400 who make it to the final round. I guess the chances of us getting it are still quite small (~14%). It seems like the timeline is pretty fast though if the DoD review is over on March 31...

    I just got the email too! Anyone know how many they cull out in the final DoD review?

    I called them today at the number listed on the NDSEG website, and the woman who answered said we should expect to receive email notification about our status next month...

    I called them and the person on the line said not to worry about it, and if they needed that information from me, they would've reached out, so I guess that's good Wow, that seems so soon! I'm not sure I'm ready to find out...
