CLaSP Students Awarded NASA Graduate Fellowship

Congratulations to three Climate & Space graduate students and one Electrical Engineering & Computer Science graduate student (advised by CLaSP Professor Chris Ruf) for being awarded the highly competitive NASA Earth and Space Science Fellowship (NESSF). They are: Kali Roeten (advised by Research Professor Stephen Bougher), Christopher Bert (advised by Associate Professor Justin Kasper), Agnit Mukhopadhyay (advised by Assistant Research Scientist Dan Welling), and Rachel Norris (EECS, advised by Professor Chris Ruf).

NESSF is a highly competitive graduate fellowship, which provides three years of financial support to the awardees for the graduate tuitions and stipends. It solicits applications from accredited U.S. universities on behalf of individuals pursuing Master of Science or Doctoral degrees in Earth and space sciences, or related disciplines. The purpose of NESSF is to ensure continued training of a highly qualified workforce in disciplines needed to achieve NASA’s scientific goals. The criteria of selection are scientific merit, relevance to NASA strategic objectives, and the applicant’s academic standings.
