  1. Also a NSF awardee and starting grad school in the fall. You have to start your first year on NSF tenure, unless you have approved medical leave or military duty.

    NSF GRFP 2018-2019

    Got my reviews: -Senior undergrad, Social Sciences, offered award: IM/BI: E/E, E/E, VG/E
  3. Hi there! Starting my MS/PhD in Geography. I know nothing about the Midwest or Madison, but pretty excited for what's ahead. I'm having a hard time with securing housing and it looks like most leases for the next year are settled in the fall semester. I found a studio for a reasonable price, but it's on Regent Street, which I gather is party central. I'm fairly flexible in my housing needs/wants, but would prefer a standalone, pet-friendly house rather than a big apartment complex Any suggestions? The main housing Facebook group seems mainly geared towards undergrads.

    I'm also curious as I'll be attending Madison in the fall. I don't want to live in an apartment complex if possible, so any neighborhoods or streets with lots of standalone apartment and houses for grad students would be great.

    Does anyone know if every field has to allot at least one award to non-grad students? I applied to a smallish field of study in the social sciences, where it seems like most GRFP awardees are in their first or second year. I haven't done much digging of previous awardees to confirm whether this is true or not.

    NSF GRFP 2018-2019

    It looks like decisions will be upon us soon! I applied to grad school this year and was pushed by my POI to put in an application with less than 10 days before the deadline since the stakes were low and I could always apply again... Since then, I have a few questions which I haven't been able to figure out: -Am I judged in a separate category from other applicants in their first or second year of grad school? That is, am I only competing with other people who have not started grad school yet? If this is the case, I'm in a small field of study that only awards 10-15 GRFPs a year, and I can't imagine there are a lot of people applying that are in the same position as me. -I have a few typos since I put together my application so last minute and wasn't able to have anyone proofread it. In any case I'm really proud of what I wrote and all of my recommendation writers thought I wrote really strong statements. Will this automatically disqualify me? I'm really hoping reviewers will conveniently skim the sentences that had typos.
