Thirteen College of Sciences students and alumni are among nearly 90 Georgia Tech students and alumni being awarded five-year fellowships and honorable mentions for their research in STEM disciplines through the National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP).

They are among 50 graduate student researchers at Georgia Tech and 39 Institute alumni being recognized by GRFP for research excellence.

The program supports outstanding students in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines through five-year fellowships, which include an annual stipend to each fellow, as well as a cost of education allowance for tuition and fees to their academic institutions. 

Georgia Tech Sciences students and alumni recognized this year hail from the Schools of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, Biological Sciences, Chemistry and Biochemistry, Physics, and the Georgia Tech Neuroscience program.

College of Sciences student researchers receiving GRFP awards and honorable mentions are:

Half a dozen College of Sciences alumni who received their undergraduate degrees at Tech and are now conducting graduate research at other universities and organizations, are also receiving 2022 GRFP Awards:

  • Yasmine Bassil — Emory University, Life Sciences (Neurosciences)

  • Ashley Marie Hanna — University of Maryland, Geosciences (Geochemistry)

  • Hannah Verboncoeur — Colorado School of Mines, Geosciences (Glaciology)

  • Holly Lynn Nichols — University of Wisconsin-Madison, Life Sciences (Evolutionary Biology)

  • Jadyn Sethna — Sea Turtle Conservancy, Life Sciences (Organismal Biology)

  • Charles Cardot — University of Washington, Physics and Astronomy (Solid State Physics)

Hardt, a Georgia Tech Stamps President's Scholar, and Verboncouer are also prior recipients of the Rutt Bridges Undergraduate Research Initiative Award for Earth and Atmospheric Sciences (EAS) students. Gibson, an AGU Bridge Fellow, and Elbon, a Georgia Tech President’s Fellow, also hail from EAS. Hanna, who majored in chemistry at Georgia Tech, also conducted undergraduate research in EAS.
