In May of 2021, the Alabama EPSCoR Steering Committee met virtually to decide the new awardees for the round 16 Graduate Research Scholars Program!
Round Sixteen had 73 applications, 36 were awarded. Funding for the nineteen renewing and seventeen new awardees will begin in the fall semester of 2021. These recipients are conducting research funded by EPSCoR (Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research) programs at the National Science Foundation, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science.
Of the thirtyeight students, thirty-four (34) are pursuing a PhD while two (2) are working towards a Master’s. Students are selected competitively by a team consisting of one campus coordinator from each of the PhD granting institutions in the ALEPSCoR Program. Renewals are granted each year subject to satisfactory progress in a given year and available funding. The goal of the ALEPSCoR GRSP is to invest in Alabama universities to expand research output and attract eminent senior faculty and quality graduate students. The program’s objective is to provide a highly trained workforce to fuel the growth of high technology companies in Alabama.
Let’s congratulate the 36 Awardees!
