Eighteen Dartmouth students and alumni have been awarded National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowships for 2023, and another six received honorable mentions.

The program is designed to maintain a strong “human resource base of science and engineering in the United States and reinforces its diversity,” according to the NSF program. Fellows receive a three-year annual stipend of $37,000 along with a $12,000 cost-of-education allowance for tuition and fees. The fellowships may only be used at eligible graduate-degree programs with a campus in the United States, its territories, possessions, or the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.

“I offer my heartiest congratulations to our NSF-GRFP recipients, and also to those receiving honorable mentions. This award represents a significant academic achievement at a national level, and the Guarini School and all of Dartmouth are incredibly proud of these outstanding scholars,” says F. Jon Kull ’88, dean of the Guarini School of Graduate and Advanced Studies and the Rodgers Professor of Chemistry.
