    New NDSEG website not secure?

    I was looking at the new website for the NDSEG this year when I noticed that it isn't secure. On the page to create a new application, Chrome even tells you as much in the url bar. Anyone know what's going on? I guess I'll hold off doing anything for the moment and email them if need be. On a related note, I see that ASEE is not managing the applications this year. Will that affect the process at all? Does anyone have any experience applying to fellowships handled by "STI-TEC"? Thanks!

    GEM Fellowship 2018

    Hello fellow GEM applicants, I wanted to start a forum for the 2017 application pool, so that we can update each other on our progress of acceptance/declines/employee status for a sense of the schedule. It should help clear up any lagging notifications and hopefully answer some questions! Here is the link to a few of the past years of these discussions: GEM 2017 GEM 2016 GEM 2015 GEM 2014 By now, some applicants should have received notification via email on whether they have moved to the next round or were accepted (In the FAQs, Q10 states that "a handful of candidates have been selected already").
  3. So, I have a bit of a dilemma on my hands. I took a gap year after graduating from college, and I thought I was going to go straight to grad school after. I got accepted to multiple programs, and I already declined all of the programs except one. Here’s the problem: I also applied to a competitive, two-year fellowship with a government organization, and I made it to the interview stage! And now, I changed my mind about going to grad school and I’d like to get more experience on my hands. Unfortunately, we won’t know if we get the position by July. Point is: there might be a chance I might decline the school after I accept my intent to go there if I get the fellowship. I know that grad schools (I applied to both public health and heath administration) allow deferment for only a year, but I’d like to have a backup plan just in case I don’t get the fellowship (which is go to grad school). So let’s say if I do get the fellowship, should I just be honest with the school I accepted and tell them I want to do the fellowship? Or take a risk and decline the school and I hope I get the fellowship? If I do the former, I just hope that this won’t hinder me from other schools considering my application the next time I apply to grad school. I’m applying right after the fellowship, and this time I INTEND to go back to school. Any advice helps, thanks!
  4. I have an internship that will leave me about 5 weeks to do something else, and I'm hoping to find something during that short time to do. I'm in law school, with broad interests.
  5. I have just received an offer from Columbia University in Mechanical Engineering Master of Science program. The thing is, I haven't received any financial aid. I am an international applicant and it will be extremely difficult for me to pay my tuition (about $46,500). The deadline to confirm my offer (by paying $1000) is 12th of March (they gave me only 13-14 days). I have emailed them to request reconsideration of my financial aid award (explaining my situation), but haven't received any reply. What should I do? Should I submit $1000 and hope that they will provide me financial aid (30% atleast)? or, should I request them to give me more days? This way, I might get admission decisions from other universities as well (they might give financial aid). Thank you
  6. Has anyone applied to the NASA Earth and Space Science Fellowship (NESSF) or know where one might find examples of successful proposals online?
  7. I know I'm shooting for the moon here, but in my wildest dreams I would love to not drown in debt in the process of getting an SLP MA. I'd love to hear from anyone who has gotten full (or nearly full) funding, whether through an outside scholarship, fellowship, assistantship, etc. I'd like to know the specifics of the school/funding source, amount of funding, and why you think you got that funding. Also, if you care to tell me how realistic this dream is, my stats are below. I know stats aren't everything but I guess it'll give you an idea. I'm open to any school but partial to the western US/Canada. US citizen, WA state resident Linguistics BA from Yale University, 3.93 GPA, magna cum laude GRE: 169 verbal, 162 math, 4.5 writing Currently doing online SLP 2nd BA through Utah State (expecting ~4.0 GPA, though not a guarantee) Relevant experience: linguistics research during undergrad, 2 years working as paraeducator in public school autism program Thank you!
  8. Hello, everyone! Just thought I should create this year's application cycle thread. Has anyone applied this time around?

    Negotiating Scholarships

    My case: I was recently admitted to U Chicago Harris for the MPP with a moderately sized scholarship. I was also admitted to GW Law for a JD with a very large (six figure) scholarship. However, I feel that I do not want to actually practice law, but work in policy which is possible with either the JD or MPP. That said, I feel the the Harris MPP is ultimately a better fit for me as an individual. How does one go about negotiating with Harris to improve my scholarship? For what it's worth, I would absolutely commit to Harris with a slight bump in funding. It is by far my first choice program.
  10. Hi, I'm a white female in a science field considering applying to the Ford foundation Pre-Doctoral Fellowship, but I just realized that it's not targeted to all diversity candidates (e.g. females in science), but specifically to members of underrepresented racial & ethnic groups. I was wondering if I should even consider applying. I figured that finding out the racial/ethnic demographics of previous winners and honorable mentions would answer my question. However, I haven't been able to find this data. Anyone have any leads?
  11. I submitted my application to the NSF GRFP a week ago and have been really kicking myself every day since. I'll try my best to give a logical explanation of what happened, and my general question is: will this cause my application to be returned without review? After pouring dozens of hours into the application materials, I came to the page asking me to select which option applied to my current situation (i.e. senior undergraduate, final year of BS/MS program or a first year graduate student). My university offers a 5-yr BS/MS program, to which I have been accepted, and I am currently in the 5th year (my B.S. was conferred in June 2017, at the end of the fourth year, and my MS will be conferred in June 2018, at the end of the fifth year). So I selected that I was in the final year of a BS/MS program, because that is honest to god what I thought was true. A day or two passes and I decided to check all of this with the NSF GRFP help line. What they told me was that the fact that I am enrolled in a BS/MS program needs to be stated on my attached transcripts, and if it wasn't I should have attached a letter from my university registrar, to confirm it that way. So I looked at the transcript I attached, and saw that it showed me as a student in the MS program, not the BS/MS program, which initially caused me to freak out a bit. After talking with the registrar more directly I found out that I was only enrolled in the BS/MS program while I was an undergraduate so that I could take graduate level coursework, and that when my BS was conferred I was moved into a full time, purely MS program. So I called NSF back and explained my mistake, knowing that there was no way I could rectify this retroactively, and just wanted them to tell me if this would cause my application to be returned without review. Frustratingly, they just told me they couldn't tell me for certain if that was the case, just that it was possible it could disqualify me, and also possible that the review committee would decide to still look at my application just as a first year graduate student instead of a BS/MS student. Can anyone on here shed some light on this/give me there opinion of whether or not my application will be reviewed. If it's going to be disqualified I'd like to withdraw my application so that I can apply again next year, but if there's a decent chance it still gets reviewed I might decide to leave it. Thanks.

    Ford PreDissertation Fellowship 2018

    Hello everyone, I noticed there was no thread for the Ford fellowship for 2018. Also: does anyone know if the fellowship covers the entirety of a graduate program? I couldn't find any info on this on the website. I was interested in the Daisy Soros fellowship but since it only covers 2 years I preferred not to apply because a school could limit my funding and I could need that funding later.
  13. Hey guys!!!! So i have recently started my application to Tufts MALD, NYU Wagner, UChicago Harris and Brandeis. I am an international student graduated from a public university in the US this may. My plan is to work in my country until next summer and by then hopefully get accepted to any of the schools and start my MA. My GPA is 3.6 pol sci major minored in IR, my GRE is really not that great i would say average and from a developing country, i have not had any internship whilst i was in college. However, i would probably start working for the government (my country) from this November and make up that "work experience" preferred by Grad Schools. My main is concern is the "money". I got a full scholarship from my country to study in the US however, i can not get another scholarship from my government for MA again. I was previously accepted to NYU GSAS and Boston University, however i had to decline the offer because of financial reasons. This year i want to do it right, i have researched and all the schools i am applying to offer various schorlaship, grants and TA etc, and i understand that it is extremely hard and rare to get FULL Ride for MA from the schools i am applying to. Can you guys tell me what other external sources i need to consider? Ex: their website, name etc. Considering that i am an international student. Also, when i should start applying to external funding? After i get acceptance or while i am applying ? Thank you guys too much!!!!!!!
  14. Hi there, ANyone else applied for either the AAUW international fellowship or the Margaret McNamara Fellowship and heard back from them yet? I am anxiously waiting for the results. Going a bit crazy ;(

    Should I Apply to Fellowships?

    I'm applying for the 2018 school year to several top tier schools, and all of the programs I am applying to will fully fund my PhD. However, many schools list possible fellowships that I could apply to as well (NSF, Hertz). Should I bother going through the application process for these fellowships as well, or should I just focus on my graduate school application if I'm already going to be fully funded? Are there any benefits to having a fellowship? Thanks!
  18. Hello everyone, I will be applying for PhD this fall and have some questions on writing my CV. I have attended two summer research programs, both offered external funding sources to fund my stay and research during the program. I did not directly apply to these fellowships; they were automatically offered as I am accepted into the program. However, I was told about the names of the fellowships that are used to support my stay. Should I include this in my CV as a fellowship I have gained, or should I completely leave it out since I did not go through the application? Thank you in advance for your inputs, and best luck for everyone during the application!
  19. I am looking to apply for the NDSEG fellowship this year, but I am seeing conflicting reports on how strongly they weight the military importance of one's research. My work is in (theoretical) gravitational waves, which is pretty far removed from national defense. However, I have heard a few times that the DoD does like to support fundamental physics. Still, I looked through the list of topics on the Army and Navy research pages and could not immediately tie anything into what I do. Any tips? Is there a good way to "sell" my research, or should I just accept that my chances are slim?
  20. I have a decision to make between two schools for a PhD program in a humanities field. The first school, School A, has an advisor who I've worked with extensively and am confident in his abilities, commitment, etc. We have a great working relationship and he's mentored me through virtually all of my career. He even is recently coming off of a Fulbright Scholar assignment. I was able to secure a fellowship through this school that would give funding through summers as well as fall and spring semesters. The downside is that the school is lesser-known, and thus could be perceived as lesser. They would also presumably have fewer resources due to their "ranking" and size. The city that it's located in isn't that great, but it is affordable. School B is more well known. It's not Top 10 well known but it's bigger, higher "ranked" than School A, and would likely have more resources. I base this off of my time doing my Masters where I attended a large well known school. I've been assigned two advisors who seem reputable, but I've been down the road with my Masters where the professors at larger schools don't have time for students. Is this different for a PhD student/program? Or was this a more school-specific scenario? School B is in a very popular city (read: expensive) that I would love. They're offered me an assistantship (plus healthcare, which is a pretty substantial savings) but summer funding is not guaranteed. So the funding provided by School B essentially comes out to the same amount as School A, but in a location where the cost of living is more than double. At either school, on paper, the advisors should provide me with the knowledge and background I need. Am I off base in thinking that, after the first two years of courses, I could travel while working on my dissertation? If this is the case, School A might actually provide me more opportunities simply due to the fellowship and cost of living. Is this possible? Does a "fellowship" look that much better on a CV? I'm looking for any insight, experience, opinions... much appreciated in advance!

    GEM Fellowship 2017

    Hey, I saw some old forums on here from past years of students applying for the GEM Fellowship Program and I wanted to see if anyone that applied was interested in discussing/updating each other about it. Here is the link to a few of the past years of these discussions: GEM 2016 GEM 2015 GEM 2014 Hoping to see some of you out here!
  22. So I got into Georgia Tech with a TA and Virginia Tech with some crazy fellowship thing that seems like it guarantees me 2 years at 30k but is renewable and ill get all 6 years funded by it. Georgia Tech seems to have everything besides the funding... better advisor(s) and more closely aligned research goals. What do I do?
  23. Hey guys, I am an international student who will be coming to the US this fall for a PhD in the Humanities and I need help understanding the offers I am receiving. Most of all: How much money will I actually have after taxes etc.? If Georgetown offers me 28000 for 8 months, what is the net value that I will have in my bank account? I will speak to the director of my program again next week. Do you think I can ask about that? Thanks a bunch for any insight!
  24. I am currently a first year Masters student in Psychological Research, and I want to apply to a PhD program in Quantitative Psychology next year. I recently heard about predoctoral graduate fellowships, and I am highly interested into applying for them (mainly Ford Foundation and NSF GRFP). However, I don't know very much information about the process (there has never been an applicant in my program), and it is unclear to me what information is accurate online. Does anyone have any advice for the application process (in psychology in particular)? Are there any great guides or websites I should be looking at? Is there a way to access past proposals that have been successful? Thanks for your help. Even basic information is helpful considering I just started looking at these today.

    UC Chancellor's Fellowship (UCSB)

    Hi Everyone, I just wanted to make a thread regarding the Chancellor's Fellowship that is offered at the UC schools. When I was accepted into UCSB, I was informed that I was nominated for the Chancellor's Fellowship, which is a central university allocated fellowship. I tried looking online for information regarding the fellowship and the process of receiving it, but couldn't find much, so I wanted to share the information that I have now that I received it. Congrats and goodluck if you're in this situation! I'd like to preface that this information is not verified as being true, but that it's the information that I found online and that I gathered from the process. I was informed that I was accepted into the PhD CCSP (clinical, counseling, and school psychology) program at UCSB about a week after the 1/20/17 interview day. I was called by my POI and told told of my nomination for the fellowship on the same call that I was informed of my acceptance. I was told that I was nominated by the department and that at that point, it was just a waiting game until the university makes a decision on the nominations (coming from all departments). I was called by my POI immediately after he heard the decision that I was chosen for the fellowship, which was on 2/24/17. I found online that each department gets a certain number of nominations for these types of fellowships depending on how big the department is. This is true for both the Chancellor's Fellowship and the diversity fellowships (Cota Robles). Typically the number is about 3 or 4 nominations per fellowship per department. The department nominates you and submits all necessary documents -- you don't have to do anything as a nominee. Here's a link to the most detailed info I could find online regarding this process. http://www.filmandmedia.ucsb.edu/academics/graduate/grad-binder/grad-dinder.pdf It's a little outdated in regard to the amount of the stipend, but information still sounds applicable. Here's an outline of my Chancellor's Fellowship offer. Not sure if this is how it is for every recipient, since I've only seen my offer, so please keep that in mind. " Chancellor's Fellowship Package A stipend of $24,000 from Graduate Division for each of three years (from the first five years of study) A supplement of $5,000 summer support in the summer following your first year A teaching or research assistant position at approximately 50% time (for the other two years) Payment of fees and UC health insurance for five years; in employment years Graduate Division pays any balance of fees after fee remission; in stipend years Graduate Division pays any balance of fees not covered during appointment periods by required UCSB graduate student fee remission Payment by Graduate Division of supplemental nonresident tuition (if required) for the first year of study Access to University housing for the first year, renewable for up to six years (provided Housing and Residential Services’ requirements are met) The schedule of your financial support during your UC Santa Barbara graduate tenure will be as follows: Year 1: $24,000 Graduate Division stipend year, $5,000 supplement (following Spring) Year 2: Departmental teaching assistantship or research position Year 3: $24,000 Graduate Division stipend year Year 4: Departmental teaching assistantship or research position Year 5: $24,000 Graduate Division stipend year Should additional departmental funds become available, you may receive a letter from your department providing supplementary support to this Chancellor's Fellowship." I've accepted my offer to attend UCSB and take the Chancellor's Fellowship. I heard from the housing department that this fellowship might also give me priority for Student Family Housing, which I'm very happy about. I do not know much about the fellowship outside of this information since I have yet to attend graduate school yet. Just hoping that passing along this information is helpful to someone in the future.
