Three UCLA Math graduate students awarded the 2018 National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship
Three UCLA Math graduate students have been awarded the 2018 National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. Congratulations to Howard Heaton, Sang Truong, and Yoni Dukler (pictured left to right) for earning such a prestigious award.
The Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) is "critical in NSF's overall strategy to develop a globally engaged workforce necessary to ensure the nation's leadership in advancing science and engineering research and innovation. Former NSF fellows make transformative breakthroughs in STEM, are leaders in their chosen careers, and have been honored as Nobel laureates. A hallmark of GRFP is its contribution to increasing the diversity of the STEM workforce, including geographic distribution, as well as the participation of women, underrepresented minorities, persons with disabilities and veterans.
GRFP 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. That support is for graduate study that leads to a research-based master's or doctoral degree in a STEM field."
