Rekha Schnepf, MSE graduating senior, receives NSF fellowship

Rekha Schnepf has received a NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. The fellowship will provide her with a stipend of $34,000 and an additional $12,000 to the institution she attends - for tuition and other educational fees for the first three years of her graduate studies. This allows Rekha some flexibility in choosing a project and lab group since she goes into a program with her own funding. If a student with a NSF Fellowship wants to choose a compelling research study but the program has no or low funding, the fellowship funding opens this opportunity.
