ERG Awards: Switzer Fellowships, NSF & More
Four of ERG’s first-year Master’s students are currently National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellows (GRF), including Rachel Golden, Patricia Hidalgo-Gonzalez, Cecilia Springer, and Emily Woods.
Since 1952, NSF has provided fellowships to individuals selected early in their graduate careers based on their demonstrated potential for significant achievements in science and engineering. The NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) is a critical program in NSF’s overall strategy to develop the globally-engaged workforce necessary to ensure the nation’s leadership in advancing science and engineering research and innovation.

Through the Switzer Fellowship Program, the Foundation supports environmental leaders for the 21st century who have the ability, determination and integrity to effect positive change. Only the most active, committed and focused individuals will compete successfully to join the Switzer Fellowship Network of over 550 Fellows selected since 1986.
