Six current and former University of Houston students have earned highly coveted National Science Foundation (NSF) graduate research fellowships.

The fellowships recognize outstanding graduate students in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) who are pursuing research-based masters and doctoral degrees at accredited U.S. institutions.

Fellows benefit from a three-year annual stipend of $34,000 along with a $12,000 cost of education allowance for tuition and fees.

"Winning the most competitive graduate fellowship competition in the USA is a testament to the innovative thinking of our graduate students and the depth and breadth of their educational experience at UH," said Amr Elnashai, vice president for Research and Technology Transfer.

"NSF graduate fellows contribute to shaping the new innovation ecosystem, and UH students will no doubt make their mark on their respective fields."

The NSF fellowship has been credited with inspiring recipients to become life-long influencers who contribute meaningfully to both scientific innovation and teaching.
