Four current and incoming graduate students and five graduating seniors from Princeton CBE have been awarded graduate research fellowships from the National Science Foundation, a five-year program that includes three years of funding for their graduate studies.

The NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students who have demonstrated the potential to be high achieving scientists and engineers, early in their careers. It is one of the most prestigious honors awarded to graduate students pursuing full-time research-based master’s and doctoral degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics at accredited US institutions.

The five-year fellowship includes three years of financial support, with an annual stipend of $37,000, a cost-of-education allowance of $12,000 to the institution and access to supplemental funding to sustain research while on medical deferral (e.g. family leave).
