Twenty-four undergraduate students, graduate students and alumni from the University of Maryland have been selected for the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program, along with 31 honorable mentions. The prestigious award, which recognizes exceptional graduate students who are pursuing research-based Master's and doctoral degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), as well as social and behavioral science, is the country’s oldest graduate fellowship program. 

“We are proud of our students for receiving such a highly-competitive award, and are excited about the future contributions they will make in their fields through extensive research, innovation, and thoughtful leadership,” said Dr. Francis DuVinage, director of national scholarships office and Maryland Center for Undergraduate Research.

The National Science Foundation received over 13,000 applications this year and selected 2,000 students for the award. Recipients will receive a three-year annual stipend of $34,000 and a $12,000 cost of education allowance. They will also have the opportunity to participate in international research and professional development through the organization’s various initiatives.
