    NSF GRFP 2018-2019

    Hi all, I thought I shared this with the group: https://www.sigmaxi.org/news/keyed-in/post/keyed-in/2019/03/11/shutdown-story-nsf-graduate-fellowship-program-reviewer%27s-concerns The process this year was a bit different because of the government shutdown, unfortunately it impacted both the reviewers and applicants.

    I agree with all the post above me, it has been a pleasure to connect with everyone! We are all valuable scientist in the community building the knowledge of so many vast topics. I wish everyone the best of luck! Congrats to all of us for getting through this process and submitting a proposal and aims page, that is one of the first steps in our scientific career with many more to come. Congrats to everyone, whooo hooo!!!!

    I think it is a great idea to share our topics, I have been clicking the NSF GRFP refresh button non-stop for a couple days now. I should be working on my research proposal for my comprehensive exam though... My research is centered around herpes simplex virus 1 (cold sore virus). It is a life long infection and cycles between two stages an active and latent stage, during the course of infection it impacts different types of cells. My focus is on looking at the cellular and molecular level how HSV-1 utilizes its viral proteins to hijack the host cellular systems and I will be comparing an infection in epithelial cells, where the active stage occurs, and in neuronal cells, where the latent/quiet phase occurs.

    Hey JaneA, I'm sorry that obstacle has arose during your second year! Have you tried to look at other internal or external fellowships just in case? Apply for everything you can, https://www.pathwaystoscience.org/grad.aspx. This website helped me a lot to figure out what to apply for. There is also the NIH F31 which I've heard from my colleagues. Internally look at your universities graduate fellowships there are support for dissertation years so you can plan ahead. Will you be switching labs? Try to look for a lab that has funding maybe you can take on a position as a GRA. Don't lose hope! I'm rooting for you!

    I am glad I found this forum, I am nervous about the NSF results as April looms. Good luck to everyone! 😀
