Cyclone Engineers receive National Science Foundation’s Graduate Research Fellowship

The National Science Foundation awarded four Cyclone Engineers with their prestigious Graduate Research Fellowship.

NSF’s Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) is awarded yearly to graduating seniors and first or second-year graduate students demonstrating the potential for significant research in STEM fields.

Students are selected from an extremely competitive group of around 12,000 applications. The GRFP recognizes and supports those early in the process of pursuing research-based masters and doctoral degrees.

Cyclone Engineers who received recent GRFP awards:

Courtney Beringer (’19 mech engr)

Jordyn Koenig (’19 indust engr)

Brandon Vance (’19 chem engr)

Nikita Kozak (’20 mech engr)

The GRFP grant provides three years of support for graduate education at any accredited institution of the individual’s choice and international research and professional development opportunities.
