National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowships

We are excited to announce that two of our doctoral students have been awarded National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowships (NSF GRF) ! Carla Abad (2nd year- Shanon Pruden advisor), and Yesenia Joyas (first year- Bethany Reeb Sutherland advisor) are two of only three FIU students that received this honor. Both Shanon Pruden and Bethany Reeb Sutherland are part of our faculty mentor program.

This very prestigious program recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines who are pursuing research-based masters and doctoral degrees. Both Carla and Yesenia will receive a three-year annual stipend of $32,000 along with tuition coverage, access to XSEDE Supercomputer, opportunities for international research and professional development, and the freedom to conduct their own research.
