NSF Fellowship Reception 2016
On September 14, Graduate School Dean Barbara A. Knuth recognized this year's National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship winners at a reception attended by current and past winners and faculty members.
The NSF receives nearly 17,000 applications annually and awards about 2,000 fellowships. This year Cornell welcomed 29 new Fellows, bringing the total on campus to 230. This is an increase of 81 since 2008.
In addition to the winners, the Graduate School honored faculty members for their encouragement, support, and mentoring of graduate students, which many winners had noted in their applications.
