Message from Chair Reginald Penner
April 1, 2015.
We received the exciting news yesterday that nine graduate students from UCI Chemistry received awards from the 2015 National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship (NSF GRFP) Program. As the success rate for applications to this prestigious program is just 12% across all areas of science, we are very fortunate indeed. We beat last year's record year by two. Congratulations to our superb graduate students for this well-deserved recognition.
We also thank our dedicated faculty and staff, including Lori Green and Profs Liz Jarvo and Sergey Nizkorodov, and others, who invest tremendous effort in coordinating our applications to this program each year. Congratulations, and thanks, to you all!
