Seven from the Michigan State University College of Engineering have been selected for the prestigious National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program.
Four Ph.D. students, two undergraduates and one recent graduate will receive the nationally competitive funding that directly supports graduate students in various science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields. Two other Spartan engineers received honorable mentions this year.
The program is the country’s oldest graduate fellowship program. GRFP recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students in NSF-supported STEM disciplines who are pursuing research-based master’s and doctoral degrees at accredited U.S. institutions. 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.
