This week, the National Science Foundation (NSF) announced the recipients of their Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP). The program recruits high-potential, early-career scientists and engineers and supports their graduate research training in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. 2,000 winners were selected from more than 12,000 applicants who came from all 50 U.S. states, as well as the District of Columbia and U.S. territories. Honorable mention recognition went to 1,459 individuals.
Congratulations to ERG student Gordon Bauer for being selected as a 2018 recipient, as well as Christian Miller, Will Gorman, and Peter Worley for Honorable Mentions!
We would also like to recognize Salma Elmallah for receiving a fellowship from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC).
