Eight University of Utah John and Marcia Price College of Engineering students have received prestigious graduate fellowships for 2023, demonstrating the exceptional students who attend the college.

Six of the students have been offered awards in the National Science Foundation’s Graduate Research Fellowship Program (NSF GRFP) for 2023. The prestigious fellowship supports outstanding doctoral and research-based master’s students doing research in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM, disciplines.

Established in 1952, the NSF GRFP is the oldest fellowship program of its kind. The 2022 fellows receive a three-year annual stipend of $34,000, a $12,000 cost of allowance for tuition and fees, and numerous research and professional development opportunities.

Congratulations to the six engineering students who received the fellowship:

Elaine Wen Ying Wong, Electrical and Computer Engineering

Sarthak Tiwari, Biomedical Engineering

Adriana Payan-Medina, Chemical Engineering

Henry Crandall, Electrical and Computer Engineering

Carter Karl Cocke, Mechanical Engineering
