Writing a Successful NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program Application Seminar

2018 Program

Session 1: Orientation and Overview
Session 2: Concept Development and Group Critique

  • An opportunity to receive feedback on your proposal/application. Must have draft prepared for sharing with colleagues.

Session 3: Individual Editing

  • A one-one-one 45 minute session with Alix Norris to discuss final edits to your proposal. Time slots are listed on the registration page and are given to the first person to sign up for each time.

Dr. Alix Norris attained her PhD at Wake Forest in the Cancer Biology Department in 2007, and continued her postdoctoral training, investigating biological mechanisms and the pathology of pancreatic cancer, at the Norris Cotton Cancer Center and the Geisel School of Medicine. In the spring of 2011, she founded Tn Consulting, located in the Upper Valley, to offer grant- and manuscript-writing support to investigators all across the nation. Tn works through a team-based approach to provide investigators access to highly-trained writers with postdoctoral experience or greater. This successful model has led to over $60M awarded in federal research funding for Tn clients and their colleagues since FY2012. For more information, visit
