Three Northeastern University doctoral students—Allison Matzelle, Jennifer 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.
