A&S Students Win Prestigious NSF Graduate Research Fellowships
Posted on March 29, 2017 by
Two Arts and Sciences students, Madison Tuttle and Bobby Faulk, have been awarded prestigious NSF Graduate Fellowships. Madison is a Chemistry senior and a Goldwater Scholar honorable mention from 2016. Bobby is a graduate student in the Psychology and Sociology programs and a USA Honors Program alum.
NSF Graduate Fellowship Awardees are chosen from over 13,000 applicants, and represent
a wide range of scientific disciplines and come from all states, as well as the District
of Columbia, and U.S. commonwealths and territories. According to the NSF, this year's
group of 2,000 awardees is diverse, including 1,158 women, 498 individuals from underrepresented
minority groups, 75 persons with disabilities, 26 veterans and 726 undergraduate seniors.
The awardees come from 449 baccalaureate institutions.
The fellowship provides three years of financial support within a five-year fellowship period ($34,000 annual stipend and $12,000 cost-of-education allowance to the graduate institution). That support is for graduate study that leads to a research-based master's or doctoral degree in S&E. Congratulations to Madison and Bobby!
