George Zuo awarded an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship
George Zuo, who will enter his third year of the Ph.D. program this fall, has just been awarded a Graduate Research Fellowship by the National Science Foundation. The NSF GRFP is perhaps the most competitive and prestigious fellowship available to support graduate students in the United States; only 37 fellowships were awarded nationwide this year. The NSF award will give George $34,000 per year for three years, plus funds to cover tuition and fees. Though only just completing his second year, George already has multiple projects underway studying the impact of public policy on juvenile crime, which were the basis for his fellowship proposal.
