The Center for Fellowship & Scholarship Advising is proud of Syracuse University’s three NSF GRFP winners in 2014: Ariel Ash-Shakoor, a Ph.D. student in bioengineering, Kelsey John, a Ph.D. student in cultural foundations of education, and David Wilson ’14, a graduate in biomedical engineering who began a Ph.D. program at Johns Hopkins University this fall.  The NSF GRFP award supports three years of graduate study in their field.  Read more about the students’ research in this recent SU News article:


Honors students: if you are a graduating senior applying to Ph.D. programs in a STEM or social science field, you are eligible to apply for NSF GRFP funding. Honors alum Ryan Badman ’13 (physics) won the award in 2013.

All three of the 2014 winners participated in NSF GRFP sessions offered last fall by the Office of Research, the Graduate School, and the Center for Fellowship & Scholarship Advising. If you are working on an application, join us for our final workshop this fall:
