Four students from chemical and biological engineering have been named to the Graduate Research Fellowship Program, an award from the National Science Foundation that helps fund those students' education and research for three years.

The list of recipients from this department includes two recent graduates and two current undergraduate students. They are:

Anushka Dasgupta, a senior, who will start graduate school at Northwestern University next year;

Grace Kresge, a senior, who will start graduate school at the University of Minnesota next year;

Helena Ma '17, currently a graduate student at Duke University;

Jason Qin '16, currently a graduate student at Stanford University.
