@qwerty2k1:  I never applied when I was in grad school, but I just wanted to wish you good luck! I feel your pain about those research statements!

It’s been a little while since I wrote one, but my SO is revising his now in preparation for faculty job season. It has been a looong process. At one point he totally restructured it because it was too long and not engaging enough at the beginning.

Hopefully you can get someone to read it over for you — a fresh set of eyes might help you decide what can be cut.

I have not but I’ve helped plenty of grad students apply for a variety of funding.

Good luck, don’t stress too much!

I’m planning to apply for an NRSA next year, but with the funding situation being what it is, we’ll see how that goes.  good luck to you!!  get as many people to read your stuff as you can, and don’t stress out too much.  can you resubmit for NSF (the way you can for NIH)?
