Laura Freyman, a student in the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Department, was one of 11 Clark School students to be awarded a National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship.

Laura previously participated in the ECE MERIT summer research internship program in 2008, and was among the students included on the Fall 2010 Dean's List.

The Graduate Research Fellowship Program recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines who are pursuing research-based master's and doctoral degrees at accredited U.S. institutions.

Fellows benefit from a three-year annual stipend of $30,000 along with a $10,500 cost of education allowance for tuition and fees, opportunities for international research and professional development, and the freedom to conduct their own research at any accredited U.S. institution of graduate education they choose.

NSF Fellows are anticipated to become knowledge experts who can contribute significantly to research, teaching, and innovations in science and engineering.
