Three University of Utah BME PhD students were recently announced as awardees of NSF Graduate Research Fellowships.  The NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) seeks to help ensure the quality, vitality, and diversity of the scientific and engineering workforce of the United States. A goal of the program is to broaden participation of the full spectrum of diverse talents in STEM. The five-year NSF fellowship provides three years of financial support inclusive of an annual student stipend of $37,000.

The Utah BME department is proud to announce that BME PhD students Daniel Feldman, Carl Mellor, and Brooklyn Vargas were all awarded NSF GRF awards beginning this coming academic year.  In addition, former BME undergraduate students Caden Stewart and Kai Pruyn also won NSF GRF awards to take to their respective non-BME graduate programs next year.
