So I was 3rd author of a paper published by our group. I then applied for a fellowship which requested me to describe my research activities. I cited the paper I had my name on. My advisor reviewed the application and told me to put my name first on the fellowship application. She even wrote on the draft in red ink to put my name as first author. Stupidly, I complied with this request thinking it might help me get awarded the fellowship. To this day I feel guilty for doing that (this was 2 years ago). Was I being set up by my advisor? This was a more junior advisor. My main advisor also looked at the draft with the citation. Was the junior advisor trying to get me in trouble?
