Three students earn NSF graduate research fellowships

Three North­eastern Uni­ver­sity doc­toral stu­dents—Allison MatzelleJen­nifer Morales, and Tanya Rogers—have been selected as 2014 recip­i­ents of the pres­ti­gious National Sci­ence Foun­da­tion Grad­uate Research Fel­low­ship.

They are among 2,000 awardees from a pool of more than 14,000 appli­cants to the pro­gram, which aims to help ensure the vitality of the human resource base of sci­ence and engi­neering in the United States. The pro­gram rec­og­nizes and sup­ports out­standing grad­uate stu­dents in NSF-​​supported sci­ence, tech­nology, engi­neering, and math­e­matics dis­ci­plines who are pur­suing research-​​based master’s and doc­toral degrees at accred­ited U.S. institutions.

In addi­tion to the awardees, six cur­rent North­eastern stu­dents received hon­or­able men­tions while another 14 recent alumni were also recognized.

The fel­low­ship pro­vides a three-​​year annual research stipend of $32,000 along with a $12,000 cost of edu­ca­tion allowance for tuition and fees. Fel­lows also ben­efit from unique oppor­tu­ni­ties for inter­na­tional research and pro­fes­sional development.
