Fifteen engineering students receive NSF graduate research fellowships

Fifteen students from the College of Engineering recently were named winners of the National Science Foundation's (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship.

The NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students who are pursuing research-based master's and doctoral degrees in the fields within the NSF's mission. The GRFP provides three years of support for the graduate education of individuals who have demonstrated their potential for significant achievements in science and engineering research.

Five students from the Department of Chemical Engineering received an NSF GRFP. The students are Brandon Curtis, Greg Mullen, Michele Sarazen, Amaile Tuerk and Ben Woolston.

Three students from the Department of Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering were awarded fellowships; Melissa Buydah, Marta Hatzell and Jarred Heigel.

Three students from the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering received a fellowship. They are Jessica Grembi, Allison Truhlar and Rachel Urban.

Two students from the Department of Engineering Science and Mechanics, Amber Black and Brian Kiraly, were awarded GRFPs. A third student, Joseph Smalley, received an honorable mention.

Pedro Neto, a student in the Harold and Inge Marcus Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering received a GRFP. A second industrial engineering student, Kelly Sprehn, received an honorable mention.

Alice Cheng, a student in the Department of Bioengineering, received a GRFP.
