Fourteen Dartmouth students, alumni, and graduate students have been awarded National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowships for 2021, and another nine received honorable mentions.
"We are extremely proud of all of our students who won National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowships or were accorded an honorable mention," says Jon Kull '88, dean of the Guarini School of Graduate and Advanced Studies and the Rodgers Professor of Chemistry. "Receiving this award is a significant academic milestone that honors students' hard work and recognizes the potential of their research."
The NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) helps ensure the vitality of the human resource base of science and engineering in the United States and reinforces its diversity. The program recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines who are pursuing research-based master's and doctoral degrees at accredited United States institutions.
The fellowships provide students financial support for three years, including a $34,000 annual stipend and a yearly $12,000 cost-of-education allowance to the graduate institution.
