Four MSE students receive NSF Graduate Research Fellowships
Congratulations to four MSE students who have been awarded National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowships: graduate student Shuaib Balogun, and undergraduate students Ian Campbell, Lily Turaski, and Nadia Zaragoza. Honorable Mentions were given to James Bamford, Martha Jesuit, and Steven Ochoa.
The NSF graduate fellowship is among the most prestigious funding for graduate students in the United States. The five-year fellowship includes three years of financial support including an annual stipend of $34,000 and a cost of education allowance of $12,000 to the institution.
The purpose of the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) is to help ensure the quality, vitality, and diversity of the scientific and engineering workforce of the United States. The program recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students who are pursuing full-time research-based master's and doctoral degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) or in STEM education. The GRFP provides three years of support for the graduate education of individuals who have demonstrated their potential for significant research achievements in STEM or STEM education. NSF actively encourages women, members of underrepresented minority groups, persons with disabilities, veterans, and undergraduate seniors to apply.
