Emily Harriott wins NSF Graduate Research Fellowship

The National Science Foundation has a long history of investing in students with demonstrated potential for significant achievements in science and engineering. This year, EBRL’s own Emily Harriott was awarded the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship from their Developmental Psychology division. About 12,000 students apply annually for the fellowship across the United States and only about 2,000 receive awards, making it an intensely competitive award. An honor so rare, in fact, that Emily holds the honor for being the first student from EBRL to receive it!

The five-year fellowship provides three years of financial support taking into account an annual stipend of $37,000. According to the National Science Foundation, forty of the past beneficiaries have gone on to become Nobel laureates, and more than 440 have become members of the National Academy of Sciences.
