Promising UA Grad Students Earn NSF Fellowships

A group of 24 students affiliated with the UA received the National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship, which is granted to those with proven potential for making significant achievements in their fields.

The award is the most prestigious research fellowship for graduate students in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields, providing an award valued at $132,000 per student. The fellowship, which also was granted to four UA students this year in the social sciences, provides three years of support for research-based graduate students in the early stages of their career.
