9 Named NSF Graduate Research Fellows

Belltower at night.

The National Science Foundation has awarded the prestigious Graduate Research Fellowship to nine students who completed or will soon complete their undergraduate degrees at NC State. An additional 16 students received honorable mention in the annual competition.

The program is the oldest graduate fellowship of its kind, recognizing outstanding graduate students in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering and mathematics disciplines who are pursuing research-based master’s and doctoral degrees at accredited institutions in the United States. Since 1952, the NSF has funded more than 45,000 Graduate Research Fellowships out of over 500,000 applicants. Past fellows include numerous Nobel Prize winners and members of the National Academy of Sciences.

Fellows benefit from a three-year annual stipend of $34,000 along with a $12,000 allowance for tuition and fees, opportunities for international research and professional development, and the freedom to conduct their own research at any accredited U.S. institution of graduate education they choose. Two thousand fellowships are awarded each year.
