Good morning, all - The webinar will tee up promptly at noon ET, so feel free to step away and come back a few minutes before the top of the hour
Please check to make sure that your lines are muted - we're getting a little background noise
Are there any fellowships that do not require the citizenship or greencard? Could you give us some examples?

It's still active on my end - have others lost audio?
mine is active
everything is good
Assuming you do receive a fellowship/grant, what if your work using the funding is different from your proposal? Do funders usually check in with you, and does doing different work from what you proposed reflect badly on you?
I was still a little unclear on the difference between the introduction and the background — is the introduction then more like an abstract?
should applicants be careful about jargon? Does it depend on the fellowship or the funder?
Are there any fellowships for postdocs or early-stage young professionals?
Will fellowships expect any common themes in a project timeline? Are there some common components to a competitive project timeline?
In your experience, what would you advise to students who may have good ideas but not access to the most flashy and trendy techniques that seem to be heavily funded, and instead have access to more modest/traditional techniques?
As a foreign national, can you serve as a Co-PI on a NSF proposal?
Is there any fellowship for non US residents first-second grad students? Fellowships are only for research or can I apply as a TA assistant looking for a research advisor?
If you have an idea that applies to multiple fellowships/grants, is it a good idea to apply to as many as possible (and adapt accordingly) or to focus just on one?
Some fellowships request only research statements for you to describe your ideas. How does this differ from something like the "introduction, background/significance, research plan" structure? Or does it not?
I heard that some fellowships are exclusive with others (i.e. can’t have both at the same time). Is this true/happens often?
Any last questions?
Thank you, Jaimee!
