Every year since 1952, competitive graduate students from all over the country apply for the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program. Those selected fellows can choose to attend any accredited U.S. university to attend to conduct their research.
As they have for years, the NSF selects graduate students from the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University to participate in the prestigious program, many of whom elect to remain at ASU because of their previous research experience, access to award-winning faculty and the dearth of experiences they gain by conducting research in one of the nation’s most comprehensive engineering programs. Fellows from universities across the country choose to come to the Fulton Schools to fulfill their fellowship for the same reasons.
In the fall, approximately 15 students will be conducting their NSF GRFP fellowships at the Fulton Schools, conducting research on a variety of engineering and STEM education topics.
