Twenty NC State students have earned awards that will help support their graduate school pursuits, thanks to the National Science Foundation’s Graduate Research Fellowship Program.
The Graduate Research Fellowship Program provides three years of support for the graduate education of individuals who have demonstrated their potential for significant research achievements in STEM or STEM education. NSF especially encourages women, members of underrepresented minority groups, persons with disabilities, veterans and undergraduate seniors to apply.
The purpose of the awards is to help ensure the vitality and diversity of the scientific and engineering workforce of the United States. The program recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students who are pursuing full-time research-based master’s and doctoral degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) or in STEM education.

- Cameron Angulo (life sciences – ecology)
- Cole Butler (mathematical sciences – mathematical biology)
- Andrew James Connelly (physics and astronomy – quantum information science)
- Erin Lynne Crites (physics and astronomy – condensed matter physics)
- Ryan David DeBoskey (engineering – aeronautical and aerospace engineering)
