NSF Graduate Research Fellowship for Alvaro Velasquez

Please join me in congratulating my PhD student Alvaro Velasquez on being awarded the 2015 National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship!

The highly selective and prestigious NSF GRFP award covers university-related expenses and comes with an additional generous stipend of $2,833 per month for a period of three years. Alvaro is the second recipient of this prestigious award in my lab in the last four years. Other 2015 NSF GFRP 2015 awardees at UCF include one student each from Biomedical, Environmental, Mechanical, Aerospace, and Life Sciences.
