NSF 2016 Graduate Research Fellowship Winners Announced

MBS would like to congratulate our graduate student winners and honorable mentions for the NSF 2016 Graduate Research Fellowship. It was a tough competition, with a total of 17,000 applicants and 2,000 fellowships (12% success rate). Applications were up from last year, when 16,500 applied for the same number of awards.

The MBS award recipients included Alexander Boulgakov (CMB) and Alexandra Helene Nishida (Microbiology). Honorable mentions include Caroline Davis (Biochemistry), Claire McWhite (Evolutionary Biology), Austin Cole (Evolutionary Biology), and Joshua Black (Microbial Biology).

A total of 28 UT-Austin students were awarded fellowships. This includes undergraduate seniors at UT who plan to enroll in grad school in Fall 2016, as well as first- and second-year grad students.

The breakdown by college at UT is as follows:

  • Natural Sciences: 10 fellowships (3 undergrad; 7 grad)
  • Engineering: 11 fellowships (5 undergrad; 6 grad)
  • Geosciences: 4 fellowships (1 undergrad; 3 grad)
