The Difference Between

Winning and Almost Winning

Attend a GRFP Brown Bag 

On most objective measures, there’s practically no difference between applicants who get the award and those who receive an honorable mention. It’s not about your GPA or resume.

Winners tell a story that creates a personal connection with the reviewers.  We’ll show you how to craft that story using plot and narrative theory — and how to populate it with events from your life that make them love you.  You’ll also get storyboards and tips to present a persuasive case for giving you the award.

“we steer students towards compelling events and get them to frame those events in a way that displays their intellectual merit.”
