Three Graduate Students Named National Science Foundation Fellows

April 3, 2023

Thomas Jeong, PhD student in the Department of Biomedical Engineering; Andrea Robinson, PhD student in the Department of Biomedical Engineering; and Anna “Izzy” Neel, PhD student in the Integrative Physiology and Pharmacology program, were all recently named National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) recipients.

Fellowships provide students with a three-year annual stipend and cost of education allowance for tuition and fees, as well as access to opportunities for professional development available to NSF-supported graduate students.

The GRFP recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering and mathematics disciplines who are pursuing research-based masters and doctoral degrees at accredited United States institutions. The GRFP is the country’s oldest fellowship program that directly supports graduate students in various STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) fields.

The NSF is an independent agency of the United States government that supports fundamental research and education in all the non-medical fields of science and engineering. Its medical counterpart is the National Institutes of Health.
