Five Dartmouth Students Win Graduate Research Fellowships

The NSF program also recognizes five other Dartmouth students with honorable mentions.

Five Dartmouth graduate students have been awarded National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowships for 2020 and another five received honorable mentions. The Dartmouth winners are among 2,000 selected this year from some 16,000 applicants nationwide.

"We are delighted to have so many recipients and honorable mentions in Guarini programs this year," says Jon Kull '88, dean of the Guarini School of Graduate and Advanced Studies and the Rodgers Professor of Chemistry. "The NSF fellows are a prestigious group, and the award is highly competitive. I send my heartfelt congratulations to all whose efforts were recognized."

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.
