16 Statistics Students Awarded Prestigious NSF Graduate Research Fellowship
The National Science Foundation (NSF) recently announced the 2018 recipients of its prestigious Graduate Research Fellowship. Sixteen statistics, biostatistics, and computational statistics students were among them, and three more students designated their field of study as computational and data-enabled science.
The fellowship provides three years of financial support within a five-year fellowship period—$34,000 annual stipend and $12,000 cost-of-education allowance to the graduate institution. According to the announcement, the fellowship program was launched in 1952, shortly after Congress established NSF, making it the nation’s oldest continuous investment in the US STEM workforce.
The 2,000 awardees were selected from more than 12,000 applicants and included 1,156 women, 461 individuals from under-represented minority groups, 75 persons with disabilities, 27 veterans, and 780 who have not yet enrolled in graduate school.
