Nine Current Graduate Students Win Prestigious NSF Fellowships

April 9, 2018

The National Science Foundation has selected 30 Brown University students and alumni, including nine current graduate students, to receive funding for graduate study under the Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP). “Brown University graduate and undergraduate students have again done an excellent job distinguishing themselves as outstanding scholars by being named NSF GRFP fellows,” said Andrew Campbell, dean of Brown’s Graduate School.  

The program recruits high-potential, early-career scientists and engineers and supports their graduate research training in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. There were 2,000 awardees nationwide this year, chosen from a pool of more than 12,000 applicants. Among the awardees are nine current Brown graduate students, one current undergraduate and 20 recent alumni.

“Selection for this fellowship recognizes their potential as future STEM leaders, and it reflects the educational and training excellence that exists in both Brown’s graduate and undergraduate programs,” said Campbell.
