This year’s National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowships have been announced, and we are pleased to report that seven BME students have been selected as recipients!
The recipients were undergraduate student Taylor Abele and graduate students Michaela Copp; Zachary Davis; Jordan Joiner; Rahul Patel; Jacob Thompson; and Maura Vrabel. In addition Amanda Munsch and Sandra Stangeland-Molo, both current graduate students, received Honorable Mentions.
The program is the oldest graduate fellowship of its kind, recognizing outstanding graduate students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics disciplines who are pursuing research-based master’s and doctoral degrees. Only 2,000 fellowships are awarded each year.
Fellows benefit from a three-year annual stipend along with an allowance for tuition and fees, opportunities for international research, and the ability to conduct research at any U.S. institution they choose. BME congratulates these nine students for this outstanding achievement!
