11 Students Receive National Science Foundation Graduate Fellowships

The National Science Foundation (NSF) selected 35 students from The University of Texas at Austin – including 11 from the College of Natural Sciences – for its prestigious Graduate Research Fellowships Program, giving UT Austin the 12th highest number of NSF graduate fellows in the country in 2015.

Evans Edward ChemistryThe NSF graduate fellowship program recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics who are pursuing research-based master's degrees and doctorates at accredited institutions in the United States. Since the program's inception in 1952, NSF has provided fellowships to individuals selected early in their graduate careers based on their academic achievements and potential for significant achievements in science and engineering.

The UT Austin fellowship recipients — including 10 graduate students and one undergraduate in the College of Natural Sciences— will receive three years of financial support within a five-year fellowship period for graduate study that leads to a research-based master's or doctor's degree in science or engineering. In addition to a $34,000 annual stipend, NSF will provide an annual $12,000 cost-of-education allowance to each recipient's graduate school.

The 2015 class of graduate fellows comes from 456 baccalaureate institutions across the country. The NSF fellowship recipients from the College of Natural Sciences are as follows:
