    GRFP or NDSEG?

    I saw someone say on another thread that choosing NSF makes more sense if you're interested in academia because you'll have a relationship with NSF which may be important/favorable when grant writing in the future.

    NSF GRFP 2018-2019

    Environmental Engineering - Honorable Mention VG/E, E/E, VG/VG Undergrad applicant so I'll be trying again, but I'm so confused. Lol the reviews don't really help me understand what I lacked.

    Does anyone know if the GEM funding from the sponsor can be used for the second year instead of the first?

    I was doing pretty okay, but stalking this thread recently is increasing my own anxiety. 😂

    Civil&Environmental Engineering Fall 2019 Applicants

    Not sure if this is helpful but... I did my undergrad at Georgia Tech. Alot of faculty of have industry connections since it's in Atlanta. Personally, I enjoyed the environment. I will say it can be a very intense and competitive place if you don't build a support team. As far as NC State, when I visited I liked what I saw. There appeared to be alot of camaraderie of the faculty and a culture of being eager to support and mentor students towards whatever goals they have. Most of who I spoke to were on the environmental side of things, though.

    Passed over for Ford Foundation Pre-doctoral Fellowship

    As someone who did not receive the fellowship and knows someone who did, I recognize that the people who received the fellowship are very much deserving. I think believing that they aren't is going to encourage you to go off. Maybe first reconcile that those who received it are deserving. You can also do this while believing you are equally deserving because I put a good amount of work into my own application. What helps me is that I truly believe the things that are meant for me will be mine. If I was looked over then there is a reason for that. Did the reviewers not give any tips on strengthening your application? I also got good reviews, but they talked about my strengths so I payed attention to what wasn't mentioned as an area of growth for when I apply next year.

    Ford Fellowship

    why does knowing I made it to the last round just hurt more? 😂

    Ford Fellowship

    So were there more than 5 reviewers? Or would 5 mean you made it to the last round before final decisions?

    Civil&Environmental Engineering Fall 2019 Applicants

    @EricWang98 Funny timing, I just got an official email about it this evening. Are y'all just shelling money out of pocket for this or receiving some support? My POI told me support may be available but that was a couple of weeks ago...
