Hey all!

I was just wondering if I should be worried that I haven't been called about an interview. Is there anything I can do to maybe prompt one? Possibly contact and lab? Has anyone been contacted yet and is it possible to be awarded without the contact?

Check out the thread on Facility/interview first contact


I'm also worried, but they do have to the end of March to contact you and it could take a few weeks before they get through the applications

Also, keep in mind you might not be interviewed at all, as some facilities don't interview. So even if you don't have an interview scheduled, it doesn't mean you aren't being considered for the scholarship. Best of luck!

Hi currentsmarty,

I've read that graduate students are most likely to get interviewed. Do you happen to know how many grad students proceed to finals without being contacted?

I am not sure of the exact number, nor if more graduate students get interviews. But I know that there definitely were people who did not interview that were chosen for the scholarship.
