The purpose of the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship (NSF-GRF) is to help ensure the quality, vitality, and diversity of the scientific and engineering workforce of the United States. The program recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students who are pursuing full-time research-based master’s and doctoral degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The program was established to recruit and support individuals who demonstrate the potential to make significant contributions in STEM.
This year four RASEI students were awarded an NSF-GRF:
The DOE Office of Science Computational Science Graduate Fellowship (DOE-CSGF) was established in 1991 and provides outstanding benefits and opportunities to students pursuing doctoral degrees in fields that use high-performance computing to solve complex science and engineering problems.
This year one RASEI student was awarded the DOE-CSGF:
