Kris is an NSF Graduate Research Fellow!

Today the 2016 National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) awardees were announced, and our very own Kris Budd was among the those offered the fellowship!  

“The NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines who are pursuing research-based Master’s and doctoral degrees at accredited United States institutions.

Fellows share in the prestige and opportunities that become available when they are selected. Fellows benefit from a three-year annual stipend of $34,000 along with a $12,000 cost of education allowance for tuition and fees (paid to the institution), opportunities for international research and professional development, and the freedom to conduct their own research at any accredited U.S. institution of graduate education they choose.” – From the NSF GRFP website 

Kris is extremely excited about being selected for this honor and acknowledges she couldn’t have done it without the tremendous support from the Eggert Lab and the University of Missouri!
