Physics students earn 2023 NSF graduate fellowships

Congrats to current Physics PhD students Samuel Hori and Alysa Rogers and undergraduate Emil Pellett on earning 2023 National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowships! Congrats also to PhD student Spencer Weeden for earning an honorable mention!

The Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) supports high-potential scientists and engineers in the early stages of their careers. Each year, more than 12,000 applicants compete for ~2,000 fellowship awards. NSF GRFP awards are highly sought and competitive. The fellowship is awarded to individuals in the early stages of their graduate study, who intend to pursue research-based graduate studies in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

The program provides awardees with three years of financial support consisting of a $37,000 annual stipend and a $12,000 education allowance. UW–Madison contributes toward fringe benefits.
