The program provides three years of support for recipients’ graduate education.
Nebraska’s honorees are Diego Galvan, a senior mathematics major; Grayson Minnick, a graduate student in mechanical engineering and applied mechanics; and Molly Creagar, a graduate student in mathematics. Anastasia Madsen, a graduate student in biological sciences, received an honorable mention.
Three Nebraska alumni who are pursuing graduate degrees at other universities also received fellowships: Ryan Regan and Maureen Winter, both studying mechanical engineering at Purdue University, and Claire Richardson, who is studying geological sciences at Arizona State University.
