Engineering, Tech, TeX, and Numbers. Lots of Numbers.
In Spring of 2013, I was lucky enough to be awarded an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. When I started putting together my application, one source of frustration was that I had no idea how to start on the essays. I'm providing my essays and feedback in the hope that they can alleviate some of the uncertainty for future applicants. I've omitted only my proposed research essay, as that research is ongoing.
I'm happy to offer general advice, and also provide insight as to my choices in these essays. Just shoot me an email. Best of luck!
