NSF Graduate Fellowships

13 April 2009

Congratulations to Adrienne Felt (BSCS 2008, now a PhD student at Berkeley) who won an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship! The award provides 3 years of funding along with lots of prestige and glory.

Four other UVa students one NSF Graduate fellowships in Computer Science this year (two of whom are BACS students):

  • Sara Alspaugh, BACS 2009
  • Erika Chin, BSCS 2007 (now at Berkeley)
  • Linda Yang Liu, BS Biology 2008 (now at Stanford doing bioinformatics)
  • Rachel Miller, BACS 2009

No other school had 5 of its graduates win CS NSF Graduate fellowships — Princeton was second with 4, followed by MIT and UC Berkeley with 3 each.
