Sixteen undergraduate and graduate students from the College of Engineering and Applied Science have earned prestigious Graduate Research Fellowships from the National Science Foundation. 

Most of the students will use their awards to continue their PhD or master's research at CU Boulder, while the two undergraduate recipients will use theirs to begin their graduate studies at other highly regarded universities. 

“These fellowships truly are an incredible and powerful opportunity to explore research topics that inspire them personally,” said Associate Dean for Research Massimo Ruzzene. “We are thrilled to celebrate this exciting news with the students and their families, and I can’t wait to see where they go from here.”

The NSF Graduate Research Fellows Program supports outstanding students in STEM disciplines who are pursuing graduate education at accredited U.S. institutions. Fellows receive a three-year annual stipend of $34,000, tuition and fee support, and opportunities for international research and professional development.
