                    • Don’t Procrastinate
                              – It will take longer than you think
                              – You will spend an equal amount of time (or even more) filling out
                                the supplementary information

                    • Read the instructions carefully

                    • Know ahead of time what information you must gather
                              – Transcripts, etc.

                    • Decide on your references
                              – Ask them ahead of time

                    • Talk to other students in your area who have written NRSAs
                              – They are invaluable

                    • Gather examples from others students
                              – Preferably ones that have been funded

                    • Talk to your advisor/sponsor long before the deadline
                              – They have to fill out Section 2
